April A-Z Challenge. A is for Avonia

A is for AVONIA

Screenshot_2015-04-08-05-44-41~2This is a christian name that I had never heard of before it cropped up as a family name in my family.There is something about this name that I really do like. If I had known about it, when my daughter was born, Avonia would  probably have been given to to her as a middle name.

My two closest ancestors with this name, had differing outcomes in their lives – one very short and the other a much longer life

AVONIA JONES born 1871 died 1873

AVONIA SILVESTER JONES born 1923 died 1971

    I have not heard that name before but I have noticed some similarly unique names in my own family tree from back in earlier days.
