Hophni.

On looking it up I found the answer. I have found a lot of males with the name Phineas in the same family, they include my gt grandfather, gt gt grandfather and 4th gt grandfather.

Hophi and Phineas were the two sons of Eli. The first book of Samuel describes them as the officiating priests at the sanctuary of Shiloh at the time of Hannah.

Stamp Matthew Fuller (1848-1916).
He had five siblings (male and female) with Stamp as a middle name which suggests that Stamp was a family name from prior generations, but I've not found the link yet.   :(

Like one of the earliest posts on here, I knew of a Teresa Green. My father was amazed when a friend of his seriously said he was calling his infant girl "Pearl" - with the surname "Button" - but the chap did!
