    Favorite Family names from Genealogical Research

    I've been putting together an extensive genealogy to stave off TTC insanity, and even though 90% of the female ancestors I've found so far were named Marie (Silly French and French Canadians), I did find some interesting other names

    Girls:

    Apolline
    Lumina
    Radegonde
    Perrine
    Theotiste
    Leonaide
    Thennelinne
    Alzada
    Modesta

    Boys:

    Gaspard
    Marin
    Galeran
    Aubin (Actually quite a few men named this)
    Mathurin
    Pantaleon
    Giles
    Sachem
    Varanvalle
    Fiacre
    Baby Sequoia Orion due October 2014!
    Other favorites: Cytheria, Arcadia, Seraphina, Caspian, Gideon

    You have some really cool names on there! My family is French as well, and all I know of that side of the family is that there was that my Great Grandmother was named Marie. She had a lot of brothers, but I have no idea what their names were (they were killed in World War I and I don't think she ever talked about them).
    I'll do some digging and get back to this thread. There are sure to be some oddities on the Portuguese side of the family.

    My grandmother had a cousin called Caramel. Who was a man. I always thought that was interesting.
