    Some of my family names

    I went to visit my great-great grandmother today, and as usual I went through her old pictures. I was also noticing names.

    Her name is Alberta. I cant remember her fathers name, but her mom was Birdie. She had siblings named:

    Rowena (<3)
    Violet
    Opal
    Geneva (<3)
    Sudie
    Ima Jean
    Letcher
    Forrester
    Fotch

    My great-great grandfathers name was Ralph. He had siblings named:
    Emmet
    Emil

    Their kids:
    Macy and Acy (twins)
    Irma
    Mary Sue
    Janie
    Brenda
    Earle
    Ralph Jr.

    Oh how I love old names. I really wish my Mammaws name was Rowena or Geneva instead of Alberta. I'd totally name my future daughter after her.
    Top 10:

    Girls - Annika, Claire, Ellora, Hannah, Jadis, Luella, Penelope, Samara, Saoirse and Siobhan.

    Boys - Atticus, Caspian, Cassander, Ezekiel, Isaiah, Leander, Malachi, Perseus, Silas and Sora.

    But it changes often.

    I love Violet and Opal - and I actually don't mind Alberta at all. It's very vintage and could be considered a nouveau place name, too, since it's a province in Canada. It's got a common nickname built in with Ally - and you could also use something like Albie, Bertie or even Betty.
