Here we go again. This is the third instalment of The Gentleman's Magazine Names for women. The names below are of ladies and misses married during the years of 1826-1830.

A delectable list! Let me start by explaining that Atholl-Keturah was named after her uncle, the Duke of Atholl. Sometimes familes passed down important names regardless of the gender of the child, which may very well explain Pyne and Maynard also. What were your favourites? Which did you not like? I must confess that Urania is not a favourite of mine.
