I've been adding cousins to my master database, in the hope I'll make more connections through Ancestry. One of the things I've noticed is how many uncommon names there are. Some of my favorite ancestor first names are:
Emilie (seems like a very French spelling of Emily)
A few of the more "out there" names I ran across are Zilphi, Euphrates, and Glaphney.
I love what I'll call the old-timey names: Atheline, Purnetta, Minerva, Opal, Lulu, Abner, Beulah, Ida, Malvina, Thursa Ann, Essie, Lida Mae, Lessarah, Flossie, Daisy, and Rosetta.
I'd love to hear what your most unusual ancestor name is!
