Some very cool names here *grins* I particularly like Florence.

Hmm. Let me think:

Denzel Frank - Went by Denzel (Paternal Grandfather)
Patricia - went by Pat (Paternal Grandmother)
Samuel - went by Sam (Maternal Grandfather)
Eleanor - went by Nellie (Maternal Grandmother)

Don't know my great grandparents names, but could probably get them.

I also had a Great Aunt Chrissie and a Great Aunt Lizzie on mum's side.

James, John and Edward are rampant in my family though. To the extent it's always been Big Jim, Little Jim, Johnny, Uncle John, Cousin Ted etc etc - they all have to have an honorific to identify them.

Dads is Peter John William for example.

Just asked Dad - of course Nanny Robinson was Margaret. I never even thought of that. One of many Margarets in his family, hence Daisy. That side of the family were dead before I was born (Dad was so much younger than his brothers, and they lived in the East End during the war - the family was decimated by the Blitz), so I have little knowledge of them.

Alice was a name on both sides of my Mum's family - Great Aunt Alice (who died last year and had the same standing as a Grandparent in my life) was called Lal by the older generation of the family, because there were so many Alices. That name has definitely swung round - my best friend has a beautiful daughter called Alice, with red-gold hair.

Wait, I forgot another Florence in that generation... my maternal grandmother's sister.

Maternal grandparents I never knew

Paternal were Pearl and Raymond.

Interestingly, my father was born on the same date as HIS father, so he was also named Raymond. I, of course, had to be born only two days earlier, on the 19th, so I got stuck with Brian. I shoulda been Raymond the Third. It sounds so much more regal.

Also, I always got gypped on presents...I either got a b-day present that "covered Xmas too" or nothing on my b-day but a promise to "make it up to me" a week later. Phooey.
