Thanks to everyone who wrote such interesting comments in response to my recent posting.
I don’t know much about my g-g Aunt Levicey/Luvicey except she married twice and bore 5 sons and 8 daughters. Not a surprise to me, one of her daughters was named Louisa but the rest of the children had usual names like Elizabeth, Katie, etc. I can only hope that Auntie took pride in her unusual moniker and that some of the creativeness her parents possessed in giving her this name has managed to seep down into my genes and those of my children.

> To the list:
> I have come across an unusual, female-first name in my family history and do not find it anywhere else. It has various spellings: Levicey, Levicy, Luvicey. Is anyone familiar with this name and could enlighten me as to it's origins? Perhaps it's a family name used as a given name in this case. At least, it's a break from "Mary", "Ruth", or "Sarah"!
