“We have 10 children. Their names and nicknames are Clyde, Annabelle, Willamena (Mena) George, Henry (Hank), Birdy, Ebenezer (Eb), Dorothy (Dot) and Frances (Frankie). , I’m Walter.”
Some of the people whose names made the list even commented.
“I’m Esther. It’s very rare these days, but I’m grateful my parents thought of it,” said another.
