One of my Great Aunts, Rhoda Ellen, married an Alfred Wildy ...
They had two children ....
Jean Alfred & Mary Alfreda ......
Obviously after Daddy ....... LOL ........
PS - & before you ask :-) yes, I have been to bed - but can't sleep, so I
got up again ....
And now I think I'll try going back to bed again ...
Poor you!, thankfully Edwina is only the middle name and not your first
name, I've often wondered whether parents were hoping for a boy when they
give a girl a female version of a boys name ie:
Edwina - Edwin
Roberta - Robert
Alfreda - Alfred
There are probably others as well, but just can't think of them right now.
