A is for Albert

A is for Albert  (As noted in the above header, during the month of April 2015 I will be blogging from A to Z about my family tree).

 The name Albert is a very common during the past few generations, and also in the current generations of my Family Tree. The simple meaning of the name Albert is Nobel, bright, famous. It has always been very interesting to me how often this name appears as a given name among my progenitors.
 In the past three generations, there are four male individuals with the given name of Albert:

 In my generation the name Albert has moved to use as a middle name. I have one brother with the middle name of Albert.  I also have one cousin who carries Albert as a middle name.
   
 (photo of cousin "Albert" is currently unavailable).

 
 In the upcoming generation there are even more young men with this noble middle name. My own son carries this name, along with one of my nephews and recently, one of my grand-nephews. I believe I am safe to assume that there are also numerous second and third cousins who have this noble name. Aren't they all such fine looking gentlemen and boys?

  1. I always thought Albert was a cute, old fashioned sounding name. Great choice.

  2. Elizabeth and Issac are popular names in my family. My middle name is Elizabeth, so is my mothers, my grandmothers, my great-grandmothers. I also have an uncle and about 10 cousins (first and second) all with Issac as a first name.
