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.

July Ancestors

These are people with "Jul" in their name somewhere, since July is named for Julius Caesar and most names with Jul in them come from a similar origin. I'm restricting this to people with a first and last name and who have a date of some sort associated with them and some sort of place. Leaving out anyone who might still be living and  here's what I've got in my genealogy databases:

Julian FitzMaurice                 born 1249 in Ireland
Anna Juliana Sauer               born 1688 in Germany
Julianna Maria Watnert         married 1772 in PA
Julianna or Juliett Pugh         married 1809 in WV
Caroline Julianne Peter         born 1811 in Ohio
Julia Ann Albin                    born 1823  in Indiana
Julia Ann Knauss                 born 1825 in PA
Julia Ann Graybill                born 1826 in Ohio
Julia Anne Bausch               born 1828 in Bavaria
Julia Murdock Baldwin        born 1831 in Utah (obviously the date and place don't match, she would have been born elsewhere, or, if in Utah, 1847 or later)
and her twin
Juliann M. Baldwin              born 1831 in Utah   (same for her twin)

There are so many Julia Anns. I wonder if in practice they went by Julia, Julie, or Julianne. Rather like the Mary Anns in my database. More often than not they went by Mary Ann and not Mary alone (or Polly, Molly, etc). I think double names used to be much more common - Sarah Ann may have gone by both and the middle name was not dropped the way it is nowadays.
