    Family Names -- Girls (Texas, Kundigunda, a woman with 19 kids etc)

    I have geneology 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 on 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. There's some interesting stories at the end to stick around for. I'll * my favorites.

    And the story of Texas Irene:

    Texas Irene on the list up there was the daughter of a man who came to Arkansas as an outlaw from South Carolina. He fled with his wifes teenage daughter, then after he got her pregnant, he went back and got his wife and lived here in Arkansas with them both as his wife. Crazy! There was also a whole line of our family that died of TB.

    I should mention that my grandma is the one gathering these records not me! I certainly don't have time to do that :P

    Glad you all like some things. It's nice to share ^_^

    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

    ^_^
