Ralph Tollemache's Eccentrically Named Children

I just stumbled onto this guy’s Wikipedia page, and wow! He really had some imagination when it came to naming his kids. Here are the children of [name_m]Ralph[/name_m] Tollemache (from Wikipedia):

  1. [Sir [name_u]Lyonel[/name_u] [name_m]Felix[/name_m] Carteret [name_m]Eugene[/name_m] Tollemache, 4th [name_m]Baronet[/name_m](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyonel_Tollemache), of [name_m]Hanley[/name_m] [name_m]Hall[/name_m] (15 [name_u]January[/name_u] 1854 – 4 [name_u]March[/name_u] 1952)

Florence [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] [name_f]Artemisia[/name_f] is what dreams are made of! (It’s too over the top for me, and over the top just in general, but wow, it’s a nameberry’s dream gp!)

It looks like for each child he just added one more name so they get longer as they go :rofl: and it seems he got a little less imaginative at the end with Lyonesse, Lyulph, Lyona, Lyonella, Lyonetta, and Lyunlph- they’re just variations of the same name lol. I actually really like [name_m]Granville[/name_m] [name_u]Grey[/name_u] Marchmont and I love [name_m]Leo[/name_m] Qunitus and that he used [name_m]Odin[/name_m]!

Oh my goodness I just read one of the sons emigrated to NZ and had 17 children which means I could be living among his descendants!

Each name is its own name bank. You could turn this into a CAF.
