Back in 2010, in honor of Women’s History Month, Lisa Alzo created a list of writing prompts for each day during the month of March. I didn’t participate in 2010, so I’m going to take the opportunity to participate this year, since Lisa was kind enough to resurrect her prompts for 2012.
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.
Truth be told, I was named after a character in a soap opera. But my middle name is my grandmother’s given name, Marie.
I do have some unique and unusual names in my tree, two of them being Hulda and Alvina (sometimes Alwine). Hulda and Alvina are sisters, who were both born in Germany.
