    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!

    Elsie was my grandmas name. It's also phonetically sounds out my initials LC so I may use it for a MN for my girl. I likes Jollet and Kenwood.
