Koromo,
Sounds as though it was quite a fashionable thing to do at the time, then, not uncommon.  Come to think of it, my gt-grandmother who was born as Annie Laura, became Annie Laura Leila by the time she died and had the extra forename put on both her death certificate and her gravestone.
(Vernon) Mary Ann  called her first son John Fortune, which I suppose is a bit unusual, and the Vernon name crops up quite often in the family thereafter, including John Fortune's son, Edward Vernon...

Hi Keith

I grew up in Abergavenny, I only live 10 miles from there now.  My dad is buried in the Abergavenny Cemetery.    What do you want to know?

And yes, Tudor Street most certainly does exist.  It leads from the Castle down to Merthyr Road and the police station is on that road, a Doctor’s Surgery, and Linda Vista Gardens (open to the public).
Below is a link to the bottom of Tudor Street - you can just go forward to go all the way up

Hi Debra and welcome to Rootschat.   Just wanted to check whether you realised you are replying to a question that was asked nine years ago? 
It's good to get into the habit of checking the dates of posts/threads you come across while searching the fantastic array of material on here.
Rutter, Sampson, Swinerd, Head, Redman in Kent.  Others in Cheshire, Manchester, Glos/War/Worcs.
