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.

So what were your Nan and Grandad called? :)

My Mums side were Isabella(recognise that?) and Alex

Dads side were Margaret and Arthur I liked Arthur for Dominic but Alex (my OH that is) vetoed it

OH's are Elizabeth and Jeffrey (Dominic's middle name as his gf died when I was pregnant with Izzy)

I don't know his mum's mums name but his mum's dad was Patrick but his Mum fell out with them so it was always a no no where using the names.

no real strange ones unless you count my gf being called Alex and not Alexander!

Mine are June but she's known as Ann (her middle name) and Anthony
and
Rosina known as Mary (her middle name also) and Malcolm known as Steve which was just a nickname.

Oh's were Jean and Hom Wii Lim Sing , but William was his English name.

My daughter has 'Hom' as her middle name as a tradition

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.
