George Walter

Sarah Esther

Amy Isabelle

Joseph Calvin

Olive Mabel

Stephen James

Ira Adelbert

  • This is great - like a time capsule of old-timey names!  My fav (for nostalgic purposes, not actual-naming purposes) is Ira Adelbert.

  • Thanks!  I thought it was a great list too!!  I love Emmalette!

    ETA- and exclamation marks evidently!!!!!

  • This looks like it could be modern day with all those names coming back. I love to see Stephen spelled with the ph!  (My hubby's name, and will be a DS's MN if we ever have a boy.) Also loving: Edison, Leonard (Leo), Ira, Emmalette, Olive, and Ruth.
  • Nice!

    I like Mary Alice, Victoria, Henrietta, Joseph, George, Stephen, and Lawrence.

    Wow, 17 kids, we're lucky to live in an age of birth control.
