GENEALOGICAL HUMOUR - NAMING THE BABY

NAMING THE BABY

They talked of Medora, Aurora and Flora
Of Mabel and Marcia, and Mildred and May
Debated the question of Helen, Honor, Clarissa, Camilla, and Phyllis and Fay
They thought of Marcella, Estella and Bella
Considered Cecillia, Jeannette and Pauline,
Alicia, Adela, Annette, Arabella,
And Ethel and Eunice, Hortense and Irene
One like Theodora, another Leonora,
Some argued for Edith, and some for Elaine
For Madeline, Adeline, Lilly and Lora —
And then after all, they decided on
Jane
