Names found in a 1942 yearbook.
I found some refreshing older names from a 1942 yearbook... What do you think of "unique" names from back in the day?

I love that you posted these! I really like Kenwood and Treva! I have looked through my g-g grandfather's yearbook from 1948 before and some unique ones that stuck in my mind from there were Flornella, Sosie, Brentwood and Sylvan. A lot of the vintage names like Dolores, Beatrice, Evelyn and Philomena were in his yearbook too. Such treasures!

Ooh how inspiring! I think I'll pull out my grandparents yearbooks and see what "unique" names from the past that I can find.
My grandfather's yearbook (1938)
My grandmother's yearbook (1944)
Audley (my grandparents didn't grow up in the same area, so this is strange that there is another one)
Watson (two of them in the same grade, no less)
