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.

3 For the 30th

Girls

Finetta

Paralee



Boys

Joseph Mary -  I had heard of doing this sort of name for a boy in Catholic countries like Spain or France, but had not actually ever encountered a man with a woman's name for a middle name (a woman's name that had not ever been a man's name first, like Ashley or Vivan)

His father's name was Joseph, his mother's name was Mary, and his older sister's name was Josephine. Paralee was his oldest sister's name and Finetta the second sister's name.

Mary was, I think, his middle name and not part of a double name like John Paul.
