I absolutely love Augustine, Cassius, Elias, Josiah and Justus.

My own dad’s name is Samuel, which I also love, especially as it doesn’t seem much like a “dad” name. Among my friends’ dads, there are many called John, Robert, Richard and Anthony (among others), but my dad is the only Samuel. I like that!

There are some wonderful names on this blog. I love Augustine, Cassius, Cornelius, Elias, Francis and Josiah. I’m not crazy about Clyde and Squire as a first names. Ross is a family name for me. The name of Ingrid Bergman’s father Justus would be pronounced something like “YOO-stoos” rather than like the English word Justice.

Cassius and Clyde are awesome. Elias is nice.

Another notable father is Otto Frank (father of Anne Frank). I think with the whole O-name trend lately, Otto definitely deserves another look.

My father’s name is Eldon George. A name you don’t hear too much. He was named after his mother Elda and father George.

I like the surnames and middles that weren’t in the spotlight in this blog post! Waring and Morrison are just awesome, in my opinion 😉 Happy Father’s Day!

Really interesting! Some great names – I adore Augustine, Elias, Josiah, Francis, and Clyde for example.

Love that bounceparty mentioned Otto Frank; Otto is a great choice.
