It is odd that we love the unusual names of 100 or 200 or more years ago, and yet frown when we hear children on the bus called Beyonce or Chardonnay.

At school I was one of three Martins in a class of 31 boys, and we each had a father who was a bank manager.

Names:
Loughborough and Loughbrough, (London, Hull, Pirton, Durham & Hartlepool);
Watson, (Bedlington, Jarrow & Hartlepool);
Ballard & Glassop (E. London); 
Leggett (Corton, Scarborough, Hartlepool); 
Young, Adamson & Wilson, (Hartlepool). 

I use GRAMPS v5.0 software. 

My ancestors are probably turning in their graves, not that I can actually find any of them.

yes - maybe there were fond of a drop or two. 

Grandad seems could have been a 'Garibaldi'

gets even dafter..

surname Osborne.. born around the 1900's in Warwickshire.

They are great names though aren't they, and such a change from the run of the mill names as you say.

I am sure any descendants will be blessing their parents - those names will surely make it a heck of a lot easier for family genealogists to find them! ;D

Yes found that and wondering about the reasoning..

they do seem to have arty / names.. but bless them still didnt spell very well in the 1911

The one parent or brother maybe has written the names a little wrong.

It is a family I would like to pop and visit.. on that old machine..

This is My Jane Clarkes 2nd husband and kids...
Elsie Blair Athol and Arthur known as Artzy

Many years ago I worked with a woman named Iris.  Her many sisters all had flower names - Lily, Rose, Violet etc.
