Tom, Dick, and Harry

Why is it that all the people with my surname in Scotland have the same first names?  They are ALL named, William, Thomas, or Jane.  All of them.  Several in every generation.  And all the Williams and Thomases also married people named Jane.  It's utter impossible and I'm going to bed.

G'Night, Internet.

  1. I can total understand your pain having numerous Scottish ancestors myself! Blast that Scottish naming pattern that ends will all cousins having the same name. I think all of my Benzies are named either William or James...well, except the women ;-)
