Names . . .

In the years I've been researching my family history I have discovered all manner of names. Most are fairly ordinary, run-of-the-mill names and some are a bit unusual.

However, the prize for "Longest name given at Christening" goes to the son of Arthur & Holland Watts, who was born in Cambridge in 1900.

The poor lad was called Clarence Arthur William Preston James Watts.

Somehow I feel he must have hated filling in forms in later life!
