Common Names

A review of the 400 family names shows there is very little commonality in use of the names that are very common in the population. There are only 1% Mary and William. And far less Robert and David. Very interesting.

Marie is a name that shows up on both sides of the family as first or middle name.

Michael shows up often.

William is common in the Williams line.

There is a Lillian on both sides of Walter and Marie’s family.

Walter’s mother name Amelia is the same as the middle name of his sister in law Lillian.

Howard and Harold each have a grandson Joshua M. Williams. The middle names are different but start with M. They are the only Joshua’s we know of in the family line going back several centuries. They are the only one’s, so far, in their generation of Walter’s descendants to carry on the Williams name. They might be the only ones so far in Andrew Williams tree unless Loran Williams has son(s).
