Default names question

Ok, names, names, names, my grandfather's name was Moses (of course he would
be 115 now so I guess that wasn't so unusual back then, and also my DH's
grandmother's middle name was Dorcus (from the Bible), again, we thought it
odd but she too would be about 109 now so the end of the century turned out
some interesting names. I do know a Cletus though, he's 70 something and
from the south.

Of course, I won't be willing to name my son Jethro, because of the
Bodine/Clampett
implications.

This thread has me chuckling about one of my sons' classmates. Cameron

kept
talking about "Cletus", so I was imagining a cross-eyed child in a red
flannel plaid shirt. Turns out the kid's name is "Keidis".

Claudia (whose children have non-hillbilly names Alison, Timothy,

Cameron)

Hmmph. Cletus is my grandpa's middle name. But my great grandparents

gave
their kids some *doozy* names.

If you ever meet the kid's parents, ask them if they are big fans of the

Red
Hot Chili Peppers.

LOL! When I was a software training instructor, I had the name "Cletus
Fernandez" on my roster and wasn't really sure what to expect.

I definitely didn't expect Cletus to be a Pakistani computer
programmer :-). I never did get a chance to ask how he got this
name...

Maybe Keidis has a young Mom. Anthony Keidis is the name of the leader
singer of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, a funky band big in the early 90's.

My great-grandmothers were named Grace, Furba (She was called Furby by her
friends) and Virginia. I don't know what the other one was named. The only
great-grandfather whose name I know was Thomas.

OK.... If we had had a boy instead of two girls he would have been named
Josef Vladzimer Szala-Krotkov. I could not bear to call him Gleb -
which would have been in honor of DH's Grandfather.

Default names question

On Biblical names, I have a great great grandmother born in the early 1840s
whose name was Azubah Zipporah Dewhurst.

Her siblings? Also largely Biblical: Zerah Zuriel, Alexandrine Zetilla
and, oddly, plain old Eden Elizabeth (aka Ada). Which actually has a lot to
do with where Holly Alexandra Eden came from -- I didn't quite think I could
sneak Alexandrine past dh, and he totally nixed Zetilla (Tilly).

Azubah Zipporah's children, born in the mid 1860s --

Frances Zipporah (known as Fanny)
Elizabeth Sarah (my great grandmother; known as Sarah)
Rachel Alice (rather a nice one, that, I always think)
and, of course,
Zetilla (known as Tilly, the tragic one who died "young" -- 60, it turned
out when I investigated -- as my mother was frequently reminded by her 70-80
year old grandmother and aunts.)

Rachel's daughter? A last Zetilla. And someone had, I believe, another
Azubah Zipporah. And so ended the freakish streak.

The last couple of generations of women in my family have followed a
tradition of late-ish childbearing (Azubah did have Sarah at about 21, but
Sarah was 36, my mother was 30 and I was 34 -- 39 with Holly) ... so we go
back a *long* way in not many generations!

--Janet
Elliot, Hanna, Connor (10/21/96)
and Holly (4/4/01)
