    Names From Your Family Tree

    I've been doing some work on my family tree and I noticed that there were a lot of interesting/unusual names among my ancestors. Most of them were in the late 1700s-mid 1800s, but some were from the 1500sor 1600s. Most of these names are from English families too, which makes it a little bit more interesting that their parents chose them:

    Alonzo
    Welcome (m)
    Archelaus (m)
    Phebe (x3)
    Ariel
    Anstress
    Freelove (x2)
    Kenelm
    Stockbridge
    Lancelot
    Benedicta
    Dagmar
    Lula
    Brooksania
    Sanford
    Robinson
    Herodias (f)
    Sicil (f) (Danish Family)

    And these beautiful sibsets/combos:
    Hannah Minerva, Olive May, and Estella Marie
    Everard and Rowland
    Randolph and Gardiner
    Sadie Beatrice, Hattie Amelia

    An interesting one was the family who named their last three daughters Robah, Orra, and Rocksa.

    My favorites from my family tree are Freelove, Everard, Sicil, Alonzo, and Robinson.
