Fascinating! I loved seeing the spelling variations, such as [name_m]Rheuben[/name_m], [name_m]Clide[/name_m] and [name_f]Chloie[/name_f]. There were so many ‘nickname names’ - do you think they were full given names? It felt very ‘UK’ (which is where I live) reading all the ‘ie’ endings!

Favourite sibsets: [name_u]Jessie[/name_u], [name_u]Royal[/name_u], [name_m]Ernest[/name_m] (g!) [name_m]Evert[/name_m], [name_f]Ruth[/name_f], [name_f]Ione[/name_f] & [name_f]Mary[/name_f].

Favourite individual names: [name_m]Alven[/name_m], [name_f]Trena[/name_f], [name_f]Claudie[/name_f], Arby (cute!), [name_u]Elmer[/name_u].

These intrigued me: [name_u]Orie[/name_u], [name_f]Mirtha[/name_f], [name_f]Permelia[/name_f] (thanks for adding mom’s name!), [name_f]Letha[/name_f], Marildia, [name_m]Clell[/name_m], [name_m]Hiram[/name_m], [name_f]Tosha[/name_f], Elestie, [name_f]Rhoda[/name_f], Aar, Polena, Locia, Landa, Oatur.

Nickname names were pretty popular here back then so I do think they were full names.

I’ve found some more Permelias. I guess she wasn’t the only one!

I loved [name_m]Leon[/name_m] and [name_m]Forrest[/name_m] too. It’s very nameberry haha. They have matching vibes.

How fun to look at these! I’m intrigued by multiple appearances of Loral. I wonder if that’s an alternate spelling of [name_u]Laurel[/name_u] or if it’s from another source.

I have an ancestor from around this period who was [name_f]Flossie[/name_f], given name [name_u]Florence[/name_u]. (Never going to use it, but I love it!) I don’t think that census takers worried too much about nicknames vs. given, so I expect some of these are nicknames.

I also noted that larger families (5+ kids) don’t tend to have a cohesive set. Some Johns and [name_f]Marys[/name_f] mixed in with [name_u]Omer[/name_u] and [name_f]Leafy[/name_f]. [name_m]Just[/name_m] interesting to notice.

Yeah I think the census takers must have been like over it at a certain point after recording it all by hand. Talk about cramps lol. And yeah once the sibsets get large enough, it’s like the parents just start winging it hahah. I guess they could have been naming some of their kids after other people, or maybe dad was finally like okay my turn you’ve named six kids, I pick [name_f]Leafy[/name_f].

Haha, totally.

I’ve looked through census records for my own ancestry research and there was definitely a different standard for accuracy. Beautiful handwriting! But one of my great-something-grandmothers appears on different records as Malzuma, Malzurna, and Missouri. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

I have a great grandaunt called [name_f]Samantha[/name_f] who is listed multiple times as Smanatha. She always went by her middle name (Louise), but I still think that her first was at least said [name_f]Samantha[/name_f] and not Smanatha. I mean, how would her parents have possibly come up with that? haha

[name_f]Cecily[/name_f], I was wondering where you can access this census? These names are lovely!

I found them on You can do a free trial but after that you have to have a subscription. I was on there to look at geneology (which for some reason my computer says I can’t spell right now? lol) but enjoy looking at names in the process.

Depending on where you are, census data might be available online in the public domain. My state doesn’t have open records though.
