My ancestry were enumerated as Dullard in Albany in the 1850's. Must be that by the next census, they were enlightened of the term's derogatory English meaning, and were thereafter enumerated as Dollard; I'm told that in Ireland Dullard and Dollard are interchangeable.

John seems to be the most popular male name in my family. My father and brother were both named John; My g-g-g grandfather in Cullahill was John; one of his sons was John. I believe that the naming pattern was: 1st son named after paternal grandfather, 2nd after maternal grandfather and 3rd after the father. This pattern did not carry over very long here in the US, apparently.

Robert, Joseph, Helen and Anastasia do not show up much in my family, except for here in the 21st and 20th centuries. Michael and William, yes.
