Thread Name: BS: British vs. American names
Subject: RE: BS: British vs. American names
Has anyone ever run across "Delton?" My brother was named after our mom's "Uncle Delton" and, though we've no known Spanish connections, the middle name of "Lorenzo" has been passed down since my greatgrandfather. I have no idea what the etymology of Delton is.

I purposely chose more English/Irish/Scottish names for my kids, Colin, Kyrsten (pronounced kear sten, as in "ear"), and Jerusha (Rue) as we'd all had some unusual ones for out times and I liked that. Sometimes people are not very careful when they see the latter and they think I named a daughter "Joshua!"
