In 2014 I featured a series of blog posts introducing you to 2,014 names. For the most part they were names that were brand new to me as well. Some names may be more familiar but I found the meaning or origin or some other aspect of the name made it worthy of inclusion here. You may love some of the names, you may hate some, but hopefully you enjoy learning about all of them.

Lena is my 1st cousin, 3 times removed. Her grandparents, John Wingerter and Mary Barbara Dellit are my 3rd great grandparents. (though that is not why we are '3 times removed'. First cousins because the common ancestors we share are 1 generation past her parents and 3 times removed because I was born that many generations after her).
