Oh yes there are some interesting names in our ancestry. Typically, the odd ones in my tree are all on my mother’s paternal side. It’s the European’s all the way. My father’s side all seen to be “normal” and familiar. So for this week I will just list some of the first names. But, if I think of it, they are just as weird as some of the 21st century ones of today. Here are some of the strange or let’s say odd male and female names in my family tree. I did not include any of the Dutch names because I do not know if they are odd or not. Enjoy!
Ahira (great grandfather)
Hopestill (7th great grandmother and her last name was Holley and married a Worden)
Joram, Jorum (great great grandfather)
Parley (my great great grandfather)
Weed (oh this is really interesting and he is not from the 1960s, but the 1700s)
Ahasuerus (I believe this man is a Tory-ugrrr a traitor!)
Massena (on Mom’s mother’s side)
