Bad family names (paca)
In the long post below (in the comments) Sammy and I talk geneology some. He reveals that he had a relative named after that illustrious president Martin Van Buren. I'm thinking: At least they didn't have a thing for Millard Fillmore. It made me remember some awesome/horrible names from my and N's families. I have ancestors with the given name of Eufrozine Sophronia. That's a killer name, no? This name was enjoyed enough that it was passed on for several generations of great grandmothers and aunts and such. However, I think N's family wins the prize with some distant, distant relative of hers whose lovely parents named her Disappointment.
