    Synthia
    Levinia
    Aleatha

    Fidelia is a variant of Fidelity; they have the same relationship as Felicia and Felicity.

    I'm wondering if Sophema is a corruption of another name. I have Parthema on my family tree, which turned out to be a corruption of Parthenia. My first thought was Sophronia, but it's kind of a jump to get from Sophronia to Sophema. Maybe it's a corruption of Sophia or simply an invention of the parents?

    Ah, Flewelling. I can't tell you how many spellings of this one I've come across in my genealogy research. Flewellyn seems to be the original, but I've seen Fluellen, Fluellyn, Flelling, Fluwellin, etc.

    LeBaron Botsford is a true gem.

    I believe Sophema was a Sophronia's daughter, but, when I checked the website, no Sophema's were listed. I'm wondering if perhaps a Sophia Emma, who's name became worn due to weather/age?

    I can't get over how wonderful Bessie Beatrice, Viola Margaret, Jordan Arthur, Jemima Florence, Bessie May, Esther Beatrice, Violet Mary, Eva Matilda, Lucy Eliza Maude, Eliza Harriett, Effie Grace, Florence May, Agnes Sophia, Annie Isabel, Carrie Elizabeth, and Daisy Ella are.
