Bless my crazy family...

I hope this helps someone, or at least provides some entertainment. I always think I should write a book about my life and this is a topic that drives me nuts!
My mother's side
Ruby Marie had Patricia Ann and Charles Joseph
Margaret Ann had Paul (no middle name), Nancy Joan, Margaret Rachel and Thomas (no middle name)
Paul and Patricia Ann had Phillip Kenneth, Sarah Jane and Charles John
Nancy Joan and Felix had John Michael, Margaret Nicole and Katherine Renee
Margaret Rachel had Robert Walter, David Paul and Matthew Christopher
Thomas and Susan had Margaret Ann and Sarah Nicole
John Michael and Mia had John Paul and Jenna Ann
Katherine Renee and Steve had Julia Ann
Charles John and Nan had Christopher Paul, Roxanne Maureen and Jessica Lee (her middle name after my dad's)
My dad's side from Tennesse
Elijah and Zelma had my grandmother Valley Jean (yes, Valley), Dale and Geraldine
Valley Jean and Eddie Lee (I don't know his history) had Sammy Lee (not Samuel or Sam), Janet Sue and Deborah Jean
Sammy Lee (my dad) and his first wife Debbie had Tammy Jo, Amy Lee and Amber Lee
Janet Sue and Jewel had Paul Michael
Deborah Jean and Paul Isaac had Heather Renee and Melisa Lee
Tammy Jo and Kirk had Samantha (after my dad Sammy) Rae, Sarah Onalee and Sydney JoAnne
Amy Lee and Rob had Ashley Maureen, Madison Paige and Riley Robert
This is great: Paul Michael had Paul Bryan, Paul Joseph, Paul Matthew and Tyler James (why not Paul James? lol)
Heather Renee and Steven had Ellie Renee
Melisa Lee and Dustin had Conner Lee and Lennon Renee
Ashley Maureen (my 22 year old niece...) has Lily Renee and Maurice Riley
My mother and father: Sarah Jane and Sammy Lee had my little sister and I: Anne Marie and Sarah Joann (me)
My mother and her new husband had Maxwell King (King after his grandfather, I like that as a middle name a lot!)
Okay.... I know this was obnoxious, but if you look at everything bold, you'll see that pretty much none of us have unique names, which is kinda neat... but pretty much ALL of us share names somehow. SCARY!

My family has no naming traditions, really. I mean, occasionally a child is named after someone, but there is no tradition to it

My Great-Great Grandmother's last name was Sanders. I have a Great Aunt Sandy, but her brother and sisters all called her Sander.
My Great Grandfather was Orval Franklin, he had a daughter named Polly Franklin.
I met two of my Great-Grandmothers, one was Hattie Este-Lee, but went by Este-Lee, the other also went by her middle name, Faye.
My paternal Grandmother is Ruby Irene, but goes by Irene.
My maternal Grandmother is Nettie Rosetta, but goes by Rose.
All of my grandmothers (that were still living when I was born) went by their middle name.
