What is the strangest name you have found in your family tree?

Grandmas Louguardus and LaVaJa.  The first one went by Lou.  The second one didn’t like her fairly common first name, so actually went by LaVaJa.  My own grandma didn’t like her first name, Myrtle, so went by her middle name, Ann.  This caused hard feelings, because she was part of an “M” naming scheme (like the Duggars “J”).

I like the odd names. Much easier to keep up with than the long strings of "John Smith" and the zillions of Sarahs and Marys.

Me too! My grandfather's name is unique; I can just Google it and find all kinds of interesting things.

The name that comes to mind wasn't part of my family tree: Sylvanus.

Seriously, any name with the word ''anus'' should be banned.

It was for a university reaserch paper on early 20th century French-Canadian communities in Massachusetts and Maine. Still haven't forgotten the name, even if my B.A was almost 10 years ago.
