    I don't think it's weird at all. Cemeteries are very interesting places! My father in law passed away two years ago and we are frequent visitors to his cemetery. I catch myself all the time looking at names. There are some gems in there!

    If I'm walking a past a cemetery, I do look at some names, I've done it since I was about 6 years old, haha! Some that I've found are:

    Thomas Oliver William
    Martha Anne Louise
    Sarah Evangeline
    Lydia Anne

    Not the most unique, but I've also seen a few Mercy's, Harrietta's, Henrietta's and a Verity

    I was just walking through a cemetery this past weekend, checking out names on the headstones, so funny to see this thread. Its a great way to find new names. I was interested to see the name Rosila, which I haven't heard. I imagine its pronounced ro-SEE-la, along the lines of Rosina. The death date on the stone was 1919.

    Estaleen is also very pretty--I've certainly never come across it before.

    i have seen that name also and like it lots

    I can't say I've ever walked in a "cementary," but I do visit cemeteries every so often for genealogy/family history purposes. There are always some great names tucked away on those old headstones.
