    My maternal grandmother was the second of twelve. Their names were Margaret (my grandmother), Veronica, Angeline, Virginia, Anna Marie, William, Daniel, Clement, Florian, Isidore, Leon, and June (yes, a guy name June -- I think it was short for (Alexander) Junior, but I'm not 100% sure.)

    And one of my great-grandfathers came from a family of nine: Frank (my great-grandfather), Albert, Michael, Josephine, Franciska (yeah, a Frank and a Franciska), Rosalia, Charles (half-brother), Martin (half-brother), and Antoinette (half-sister).

    That's all I'm really familiar with.

    My great granddad's brothers and sisters had pretty cool names:

    Alma Annie
    William Nelson (Great Grandad)
    Henry Ethell
    Percy William
    Sarah Ivy

    I think it was the influence of their mother Annie, as her siblings and aunts and uncles have fun names too:

    Annie and her sisters:

    Wilhelmina Annie (g.g. grandmother. She just went by Annie. I don't blame her.)
    Elizabeth Ida
    Violet Louisa Mary
    Henrietta Letitia
    Alice Lillian
    Rose Josephine
    Thomasine Norah
    Ethel Constance

    Her dad, aunts and uncles:

    Charlotte Anne
    Henry Ethell
    Sarah Elizabeth
    Isabella Maria
    John William
    Alfred Ethell
    Hebert Ethell
    Ernest Ethell
    Edwin Thomas (Annie's dad)

    I don't know anything about my great-grandparents' siblings but I know some of my grandparents'.

    My paternal grandma's parents were Louis (he changed it from Luigi when he came to America) and Mary Dolores (she was Maria Delorosa in the home). They gave their children American names but they were all baptized with their Italian names (Italian in ()s):
    Patsy (Pasquali...a boy)
    Irene ( grandma)
    William (Guglielmo)
    Alverda (the only one that actually had an Italian name!)
    Lewis (Luigi)
    Nancy (Nunzia)

    My paternal grandpap's parents were Frank and Anna Marie and their kids were:
    Frank Edward (died in childhood)
    Gerard (my grandpap)

    I don't know much about my mom's parents' siblings. I get them all confused. My maternal grandparents were Jeannette and Joseph and I know my grandma had a sister Catherine and that somewhere between them there is a John Miles, more Catherines, and a host of others.

    I think my Italian side had a cool idea to give the kids a name and then call them by their Italian names. Also, Frank is a family name-- there have been Frank Peter, Frank Joseph, two Frank Edwards, and I think a Frank Thomas.

    My maternal grandmother had 8 brothers and sisters: {Parents Linwood & Nannie}
    Garvin, Olgie {prn. all-gee}, Charles, James, Willie May, Elsie {my grandmother}, Janie, Opal, Edwin.

    My maternal grandfather only had one brother: {Parents Antonia & Anna}
    Mario {Mike}, Francesco {Frank} {my grandfather}.

    My paternal grandmother had 2 sibilings: {Parents ???? & ????}
    Gertrude {my grandmother}, Harry, & not sure about the other sister.

    My paternal grandfather had 3 siblings: {Parents Otto & ???}
    Dorthea, Hans, Uli {short for something}, Eberhard {my grandfather}.

    Don't have the family tree in front of me or I'd be able to tell you more. Tried to ask my dad but he didn't even know his own grandparents names, he never met them!
