Horrors from the Past
Here are some truly strange names from a genealogy book on my ancestors (most born 1895-1920). These are only first and/or middle. Also, I'm making a similar post about the "good" names I found.
All these spellings are correct. The weird typos are not weird typos. They are actual people's names.
Erma Gladys (not really strange for the time period, but still)
Mildred and Ballard
Burnice, Burl and Wilford
Jerry Ray and Cheri Rae
Thelma Dae and Alma Fae

I do like Mildred (as a GP), but the others are just....X_xI can really imagine myself having a daughter named Moira or Rochelle...

Very interesting! I've always wanted to do genealogy myself to see what gems (or horrors) I could dig up."Walter. That’s good. I’ve never known a little kid named Walter. It seems like an old man’s name, but I guess you have to start somewhere."
