    Oh my word, E.M. That is a goldmine of interesting names. Your family tree must be quite well documented. Tell me that some of those were surnames. Seaborn is fantastic. You must be American. Only an American would have the names Powhatan, Baldric, Willoughby, and Olaf in their family history.

    We have LOTS of very traditional names (Charles and William) but I have a great grandfather named Nelson (after Lord Nelson) which I think is pretty cool.

    Nelson
    Wallace
    Conrad
    Gordon
    Names I enjoy:

    Girls: Lucy, Elena, Lake, Sylvie

    Boys: Jack, Eamon, Sylvan, Theo

    We have Truesberry, several generations of Truesberrys...

    Most of our names are very traditional. Out of the documented family tree, I'd consider using Jesse (which has been used on at least 3 generations) and Dorothea. And I agree with previous posters, you've hit the jackpot of interesting names!
