Names of Note
Those of us pursuing our family history often run across odd, interesting, or amusing names.  I wish I had started noting them sooner because I've forgotten some really good ones, though Clay Hollowpeter and R.F. Pisser come to mind, but I don't remember where I heard them.  But better late than never, so here are my more recent findings — with their sources.  All of these are for real, which is, of course, what makes them amusing, charming, amazing, etc.
