Continuing with the theme of the week, today is Unique Names Day.
My name is pretty common, but I think my daughter's middle name is unique.
It's a family name that my grandmother, Mabel Salmon Beautrow, created. It's my aunt's middle name also. I like it because I think it's pretty and it's special because it came from my grandmother. After she was named I realized that it's a combination of my sister's and my name. My name starts with "Laur" and my sister's name ends in "-ee".
Not the most outrageous name, but I've never seen it on a keychain.
As far as my family tree, I have a few unique names. Some of them, I'm assuming, weren't unusual in their day. My great, great grandmothers Aletta Roberts and Otelia Bell Via. My great, great, great grandmothers Ophelia Adeline Wolfe and Dee Ida Van Winkle. Who knows though, maybe they would think Laura was odd.
