Anyone have some dreadful/unique names in their family trees?

Journal by allycat

Dear members, Just a little funny to lighten your genealogy searching...

I found this name by accident at FamilySearch - The largest collection of free family history, family tree and genealogy records in the world

IGI Individual Record

Lively SLAUGHTER born 1813 North Carolina, USA!

What were her parents thinking?


And then I thought I'd google the net to see what I could find as I was in the mood...

Unsual, Unique and Creative Names - More Unusual Names

More Census Whacking - Strange or Funny Names

And then it seems you can purchase books on the subject:-

Bertha Venation - And Hundreds of Other Funny Names of Real People by Larry Ashmead ... get it? Say the name slowly and it sounds like Birth Of A Nation. Really dreadful.
