What's in a name?

Every once in a while, I run across interesting little details in the family tree that probably go unnoticed by everyone but me.

Take the family of Allen Dee Toomey and Alice Hucks.

They married on 1 Oct 1899, in Monroe County, TN. Throughout the first 20 years of their married life, they lived in Monroe County. Then, they moved off to Summit Co., OH, and that's where I found them in the 1930 census.

With their children, Gertrude, Gaspard, Gladys and Grant.

I looked at that and blinked. Wondered whether it was Allen or Alice who was such a fan of alliteration.

And muttered under my breath as I entered data for Gaspard into the software...

Your mama must have had a really hard labor with you son...I'm so sorry...
