Thought this could be an interesting one as so many people are looking for 'good' old names! . Some really old-fashioned names are lovely but others will never make a comeback - though I could be wrong!
My grandparents: Daisy & Harry from my Mum's side Blodwen (Don't say a word!!) & Thomas from my Dad's side.
Mr. C's were Maud Iris & Thomas Henry On the other side he had a Nan called Jennett. Never heard of that one before.

Mums side were jessie and Archibald (known as Archie). Dads side were Jessie and James ( known as jimmy). Got uncle Archie and two cousin archie's on same side. You shout archie and everyone in family answers hehe Not sure of Neil grandparents names Xx
My family history is a bit messed up. My mum's mum was Margaret, her biological dad was Francis, but the man that was her dad was Armour. On my dads side, his mum was Annie and I dont know his dad, I just can't remember, as he was adopted. I can't remember what his adoptive parents were called, as they died when I was very young.

My Grandad's name on mum's side is Abdul, my Nan's name escapes me, I haven't thought of her or spoken about her in decades, but it is something French as she's Mauritian. On my Dad's side: Mohammed and Sakeena.
