Now there are some seriously odd names around aren’t there? Peaches Geldof, Apple Martin, Princess Tiaamii Andre, Blanket Jackson and Moon Unit. These are all names of celebrity offspring but it’s not just modern-day children who have fallen foul of odd sounding names.
Here’s a few of my favourite/oddest sounding names from my own family:
- Kerunhappuck Poll b. 1810
- Frances Flower b.1731
- Vinecrow Steadman b.1836
- Wenham Barber b.1687
- Fanny Tingey (née Harrison) b.1802
- Albina Dewey b.1884
- Mary Ong b.1774
- Elizabeth Fairy b.c1660
- John Truelove marrying Eleanor Goodsole
I know that you can probably do better, so leave your REAL ancestor names (with links?) in the comments section.
