Those are really interesting. I wonder if some, like Grizzly Jim, were names that got picked up later in life.

It’s fun to see how a number of these are ones we see on present day lists as modern names, like Garrett and Gavin and Griffin. There are a few I think would be great as come back names, like Georgianna and Gervais.

If you want to see some really odd names, look up Puritan names. They blew everybody else out of the water when it came to strange names.
