    I think my favourite is Luminda (it seems like a cross between Lumina and Lucinda). Lafayette would be a cool middle name choice. Jeptha is interesting too but I certainly wouldn't recommend Ora Lee as a name (orally). Strangely enough, I also have a male Garnet in my family tree. Thanks for sharing!
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Whoa.
    My family tree was filled with Elizabeth varients, Arthurs, Roberts, Herberts, Violets, Florences etc... The weirdest name I found was a Ronald McDonald and a Donald McDonald!
