    names from your family tree

    i was recently going through our family trees and geneology records and was fascinated by some of the names in there! i thought it would be fun to have a thread to post names we find in our family trees and a story behind them if you know. Some of the ones i discovered were Eleanor, Ester, Cordelia, Alice, Mabel, Edna, Alma, Mayce, Nancy, Myra, Fanny, Lottie, Ada, Ebenezer, Herbert (will not be using this one!) Eunice, Hilda, Millicent, Phyllis, Agatha, Marjory, Percy, Verity, Amber, Olive, Bronwyn, Chorley, Carolynne, Minnie, Selina, Heath, Nola, Vincent, Edith, Winnie, Flo, Ethel, Ray, Dot, Bennick, Ewen, Bernice, Gladys, Lily, Jean, Yvonne, Elsie, Roslyn, Beverly, Doris, Ivy, Etain, Edmund, Francis, Uty, Ernest, Florence, Stella, Reginald, Gertrude,Victor, Kirby, Glynis, Patrick, and Augusta
    Then there are the unusual ones - Winter, Zena, Bunny, Major, Humphrey, Myrtle, Lilias, Cornelius, Hedley, Valentine, Oddity, Chrysomer, Dulciebella and Sherlock!
    i was interested to discover i must have some French as names like Pierre, Lucosse, Phillipe, Jean, Jehanne ect. kept popping up

    Mine is pretty tame though Wilfred, Gilbert, Valentine, and Veronica stand out.

    I'm jealous of a couple middles in my husband's family tree: Abercrombie and Lancelot.
    Proud Mama to Brynn Elizabeth (3/2014)
    and Beatrix Dawn (10/2018). Searching for the perfect name for our 3rd and final child (2/2020).
