    Family Names -- Boys (Council, Garland, Rittenhouse etc)

    I have genealogy stuff dating back to the 1600s when my family was still living in Europe. These are all from my grandmothers side as the only names I know from my grandfathers side are his parents, William Henry and Lily Ottilie.
    The names at the beginning of the list start at about 1650s and end in the 1990s (some repeat A LOT [like William] so I'm listing them once and not bothering to count them. I'll only repeat if they're listed with a middle name)

    There are some really interesting, gender bending, and foreign names on here! I hope you stick with it even though it long because I'm so proud of my family for their naming skills. I'll * what I like.

    Hi Dantea, it's wonderful that you have ancestral names from the 1600's even if it's one side of the family.

    Samuel

    Harvey
    Jefferson Roosevelt - very Presidential
    Jack Minor - Jack Major was his daddy?
    David Worth

    Waylon Vaughn
    Verl Huston - sounds like a cowboy name

    Alexander Baird
    John Euclid - I like this combo!
    Benjamin
    Duke
    Holland
    Noah
    Amos Jordan
    Avery
    Council - this would make a cool and quirky mn
    Finley
    Leander
    Lydian - could this be the masculine version of Lydia?
    Millard
    Upton
    Arlie Jones
    Troy David
    Wesley Nathaniel*
    John Wesley - very Methodist
    Fordney Hughes
    Arthur Calvin

    I thought the same thing about Minor, that it would be adorable rather than doing John Allen Smith Jr (for example) and instead do John Minor Smith :P I also love seeing Valentine on a boy even if it's not a name I love. I do love Valentino though ^_^

    And Mischa, I never even knew Thumper had a real name until I asked my grandma. Or that my aunt Jody was really Lula Josephine. Turns out she hates Lula, Josephine and Jody and would just prefer to be Jo. I also never knew my uncle Bob was Allen Bradford >.<

    Just to add the last few people to the list (even though only one is a boy):

    Kristy Lynn -- my mom
    Angel Starr -- me
    Zachary Nathaniel -- my brother who was put up for adoption and I've never met
    Amber Dawn -- my mom says she never realized I had a night name and she had a day name for our middles until months later :P
    Persephone Elysia Willow -- my daughter

    I can't believe you aren't trying to work Cutliff, Blodgett, and Rittenhouse into your current combos.

    About Pleasie... That one started as a nickname for Pleasant. My great-great-grandmother had a brother named Plez Dewey. The story I was told is that Dad was supposed to pick the name but he couldn't come up with anything, so Mom said "oh, let me name him!" and instead of "please do" Dad said "please dewey." They started calling him Plez as a joke until they could come up with something else, except Plez stuck and they never came up with another a name. And that's how he got stuck with Plez Dewey while his siblings were the likes of William Noah and Celia Lavinia.
