I'm sorry I didn't put this in my other post, but perhaps it deserves something all its own.
I signed my younger daughter up for Sparks the other day and found out that in her little group (I'm sure there must be a proper term for a Sparks group) there were twins. Names? Elizabeth (Betty) and Veronica.
I was absolutely speechless. There are plenty of names in parantheses, which indicates that is the child's preferred name. Maybe it's the little girl's idea to be called Betty...?
These are some of the sib-sets of cousins in my family:
Jessica Maree (me)
Callum & Erina (twins)
James & Natalia (twins)
Dillon (my great grandmother's maiden name)
Aunts and Uncles, born in the 1940s and 1950s:
John Aloysius (Jack or Olly)
Catherine (my mother, Cathy, also my grandmother, Cay)
Donald (my father and my grandfather)
Grace Constance (Connie, aunt)
Dorothy-Ann (Deedee, Dot)
Some cousins, born in the 1960s-1980s:
Aloysius John (Olly)
Therese Catherine (TC)
Deirdre (said der-druh, nn Dee)
Some cousins Kids names, born in the late 1980s-now:
Gray Phillips (no, no ones last name was Phillips, its a random s)
Catherine (I can count 5 catherines out of my grandmother, mother, cousins and two cousins kids)
Helen (my favourite, and the newest)
on my dads side everyone has irish names (i didnt list them all at all) and oon my moms side its totally random (ie. Mecca and Gray)
