Fearless Females: Sharing Good Names

Lisa Alzo from http://www.theaccidentalgenealogist.com/ is repeating her series for Women's History Month.

March 3 — Do you share a first name with one of your female ancestors? Perhaps you were named for your great-grandmother, or your name follows a particular naming pattern. If not, then list the most unique or unusual female first name you’ve come across in your family tree. (A little Late)

See my post from last year were I explain how I was named after my grandmothers.

I also share the name Mary with my Maternal Great Grandmother Mary Ann Holmes Chaplin.  Such a grand old name.  My second Great Grandmother was an Elizabeth.  My third Great grandmother was a Maria, not the same but close to Mary.  And there are two more Mary's the next generation back.
