      I have at least one Effie and several Affies in my tree. I am going to do a blog post asking people for some of the cool, unusual, or interesting names in their trees.

      You are welcome. I occasionally come across Effie headstones during transcriptions or photographing cemeteries. It’s an unusual enough name and one of my Affie recent ancestors pronounced it as Effie. It makes me want to do a post about unusual, uncommon, funny, or weird names. At times, I would see a first middle last name combination and I used to think, there’s only one of them, but later stumble across 2 – 4 more that may or may not be related to the first one.

      I have a great uncle that I didn’t know about and his name is some combination of Hosea James Joseph with the order changing over time. End result I don’t know which was his first name and which were his second and third names. His surname has stayed the same throughout the search.
