    Default Horatio Hornblower is on the list: ARE YOU?

    Horatio Hornblower is on the list: British office compiles list of odd names

    Canadian Press Wednesday, September 14, 2005

    LONDON (AP) - Horatio Hornblower is an odd name, but consider his siblings: Azubia, Constantia, Jecoliah, Jedidah, Jerusha and Erastus. Rene Jackaman, archive assistant at Cornwall County Record Office, found all those names after coming across a real-life namesake of C.S. Forester's fictional naval hero in county census records.

    The Hornblower name has been on record for centuries.

    Inspired by that discovery, staff and researchers at the Cornwall Record Office compiled a list of more than 1,000 unusual names found in censuses as well as in births, deaths and marriage records going back as far as the 16th century.

    "My all-time favorites are Abraham Thunderwolff and Freke Dorothy Fluck Lane," she said.

    Other discoveries included Boadicea Basher, Philadelphia Bunnyface, Faithful ****, Susan Booze, Elizabeth Disco, Edward Evil, Fozzitt Bonds, Truth Bullock, Charity Chilly, Gentle Fudge, Obedience Ginger and Offspring Gurney.

    Levi Jeans was married in Padstow, Cornwall, in 1797.

    Other remarkable duos in the marriage records included Nicholas Bone and Priscilla Skin, joined in wedlock in 1636; Charles Swine and Jane Ham in 1711; John Mutton and Ann Veale in 1791, and Richard Dinner and Mary Cook in 1802.

    My name is Patrick Owen Gwynne Williams-Velu.

    I am getting it changed to drop the williams and i was thinking of dropping my middle names and changing it to dayne ger. So if someone says 'thats dangerous' i can say 'dayne ger is my middle name' But i probably wont. My mum was trying to encourage me, and thats when i knew it was a bad idea.

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.
