Hi Penny,
She married John Dickie Florence in Aberdeen in 1915.
I have the marriage cert. which is clear to read at the top
of the page. I am having difficulty reading her fathers
first name, mother Margaret. Any help with that info?

Just doing a bit of Googling the name seems to appear as a surname quite a lot, especially in Canada - possibly French origins?

Are you certain it isn't a surname? Many countries put the surname first, then christian name afterwards

InspectorGreenPen Report 7 Dec 2010 12:08

Reading your last post which crossed with mine, perhaps she was named after an ancestor who had the surname Uniam?

Hi Potty everything fits in as she was b1894 and her father
b1862 and mother b 1865. Just found out that father was from Fraserburgh. Wonder why her name was Uniam Carnegie
Bogue on marriage cert. Thank you for your help.

Hi Joan, I did notice a few lakes with the same name but
thought Eskimo name. Didn't notice Indian Lake and have
not looked to see if Indian connections etc.Father was a Cooper
but she could have been named after a relative or ancestor as
IGP suggested. Thanks Joan for you help.

Trying to trace Abercrombie backwards to see if there is a connection to the name, found a baptism on the IGI, mother Margaret Borgue, no father.

Think this is him in 1871 as there is a marriage for a George Davidson to Barbara Borgue in Fraserburgh in 1856:
