Emmeline Pankhurst -- A cool babynamer?

I love trawling through old British census/birth records and I was looking up [name]Emmeline[/name] Pankhurst. This was her family:

[name]Emmeline[/name] Pankhurst nee Goulden
[name]Richard[/name] [name]Marsden[/name] Pankhurst (her husband)

[name]Christabel[/name] [name]Harriette[/name] Pankhurst (1880)

[name]Estelle[/name] [name]Sylvia[/name] Pankhurst (1882) – known as [name]Sylvia[/name]

[name]Henry[/name] [name]Francis[/name] [name]Richard[/name] Pankhurst (1884) – known as [name]Frank[/name]

[name]Adela[/name] [name]Constantia[/name] [name]Marsden[/name] Pankhurst (1885)

[name]Henry[/name] [name]Francis[/name] Pankhurst (1889) – born after [name]Frank[/name] died and named after him

What do you think? I think they go really well together. And I actually like that they are a little daring :slight_smile:

Oh, bless her heart, she had some beautiful, beautiful names! They are all gorgeous, but [name]Constantia[/name] is utterly stunning. I love it to pieces! It is shooting right to the top of my favorite names’ list :slight_smile:

I know! I fell a bit in love with it myself. I’ve always loved [name]Constanza[/name] for a girl and [name]Constantin[/name]/[name]Constantine[/name] for a boy so this gets a big thumbs up from me.

Oh, I love [name]Constanza[/name] as well :slight_smile: [name]Constantin[/name] and [name]Constantine[/name] have long been my absolute favorite names for a boy, and I love [name]Constantina[/name] and [name]Constanta[/name] for girls. So wonderful to have another Const- name to add to my list, heehee :slight_smile:
