My “Novel” 1800’s Family

Posted on: January 6, 2012

If you had to create a family tree of sorts (using only first names as it’s like a novel) about a family/families in your novel, what names would you choose? How many children would the parents have? Grandchildren? Pets? Farms? Jobs? I’m only going to put the names I’d use, and their ages, but you can give full detail if you’d like! I look forward to reading about your families!

○ Mother: Anna, 43
○ Father: John, 44

DS1:  Billy, 26
• Wife: Alma, 24
>DD1: Olive, 7
> DS1: Edward, 5
> DD2: Maude, 2
DS2: James, 25
• Wife: Adelaide, 23
> DD1: Cora, 6
> DS1: Nate, 4
> DS2: Matthew, 15 mos.
> DS2: Levi, 15 mos.
DD1:  Minnie, 23
• Husband: Jim, 23
> DS1: Louis, 5

Wow, so many lovely names there! I’ve never really had much time for Gus, but in retrospect he has a wonderfully vintage feel to the name. Same goes for Maude, Cora, Clara, Nell and Bernie.
