Interesting name, arb. May I ask how her parents chose it?

@jld ~ I don't really have the first damned clue!

She was born way back in 1911. I never really got to meet either of my maternal grandparents as they were already deceased when I unexpectedly came along in 1952 as the sixth of six sons!

I bet that was fun, arb. I hope your older brothers did not pick on you too much, though!

There was some 12 years difference between No. 5 and myself! Dad always kiddingly referred to me as "the Borden Milk baby!"

Mom always intoned that she raised six sons in two families: one with the first 5 sons, the other with me as greatly "an only child!"

I'm told that the "first family" was about as poor as church mice ~ I came along when Mom and Dad began to embrace a little affluence!

Needless to say, I was spoiled rotten, something that the other boys never directly got in on!

Back on topic though, Mom had some sisters who had some absolutely God-awful names!

Anything that rhymes with "aiden".... male or female.

Re: First names you would never call a child of yours

In Ireland at one stage it was common enough to give ALL your children the second name Mary (as in the mother of god).I worked with an engineer whose name was James Mary ******. When some of his colleagues got wind of this he was known as Mary from then on.I know at least ten men who have the second name Mary,friends of cousins etc and they all hate it.

Re: First names you would never call a child of yours

I wanted my Youngest to be Crampton Lemuel...

I figured it would make him a tough kid...can you imagine...i was gonna call him little Crampy.

MrsMarriedDude was not having it though.

My dads name was Fahrney, thankfully I wasn't a jr.

What?!
I think they were joking around with you.
Can't see a Catholic mother naming her son after a woman!

Watch it now!
I named our basset hound "Bartholomew!"

My rationale was solely that I needed a long name for a long dog!
