The complete 'Silly Names List'

Cornwall Record Office

This final version of the list is made up of volumes 1-2 plus all the entries which were intended for volume 3.

We hope that some amusement is to be found from this little publication (and maybe a few ancestors). Thanks to all who have contributed names and to the volunteers of the Cornwall Family History Society.

The names illustrate how spelling, religion and family influence the population and what was a serious name now appears odd to the modern world
