    Old Fashioned Names from Genealogy

    I've been drowning in genealogy lately, and I find it neat to see names that were so common "back then", that we never hear now. Of course, there are a lot that I still think of as very old and then realize that I have heard it recently. Estelle and Estella seem to be getting used here and there. I know a little girl with the middle name of Esta. Millicent is poking out her head also.

    Anyway, here are some "common" names that I saw in my tree. Would any of them pick back up?

    Alma, Alta, Arlet,
    Electa (I always liked this)
    Essie (I know a 30ish one!), Etta (my grandmother!)
    Lafayette, Lemuel (this seems everywhere in my tree, but I can't imagine it now!),
    Lettice/Lettie (well Lottie is showing up, but I can't imagine Lettice -- maybe Letitia will bring Lettie back)
    Minerva, Myrtle
    Nelle/Nellie, Netta/Nettie (this reminds me of the Hatties coming back)
    Waldo

    And here are some uncommon ones!

    Albina, Alcesta, Arrilla, Diadema, Elburn, Fodie (or maybe Foda) Melona, Ozell, Sherburn, Urania
