What unique vintage names have you come across?
These types of names have always fascinated me. Names that feel vintage but are either rarely used in the time period or are vintage ‘invented’ or smoosh names
Some i love or have come across include…
These are very interesting!!
[name_f]Picotee[/name_f], [name_f]Florinda[/name_f], [name_f]Canary[/name_f] and [name_f]Alta[/name_f] are some I’ve come across
One time i went to the US top 1,000 from 1900 and went all the way to the bottom of the list. There are for sure some hidden gems in there!
Ooh I’ve never seen picotee! I’ll have to add it to my list
That’s one of my favorite places to look! That and old census lists. Most of these came from an old [name_m]Quebec[/name_m] census from the early 1900’s
I love [name_f]Iphigenie[/name_f] and [name_f]Ismerie[/name_f]! So so beautiful!
[name_f]My[/name_f] grandma’s name was Avilda [name_f]Lorene[/name_f]
