Vee, My parents had a friend who was named Francis. He was born in Melbourne, became an architect, & moved to London. (My husband & I stayed with them in 1976 for a few days) then their children grew up & left home of cause, so he & his wife moved to a small Greek island near Athens! We did them on the Greek island in early Sept 2002! They still kept an apartment in London though. Sorry to bore you with all that, Vee, I just got slightly carried away!!
William and Jeannie (Dad's parents), and William and Ivy (Mum's parents). I've always been rather amused that both my grandfathers had the same name. They both called their sons William too! Thanks to Prince William, William seems to be quite popular still. However, I don't think too many parents are calling their daughters Jeannie and Ivy.
I find it fascinating how, like clothes and interior décor, names go in and out of fashion. When I was young, names like Jenny, Leanne, Louise, Julie and Carolyn were so popular, but now you hardly ever hear of them.
