goodness Emma, bit of a mouthful isn't it?


'Emma' Report 7 Dec 2010 12:11

Never thought of that IGP. tried google but got nowhere
as a first name.



'Emma' Report 7 Dec 2010 12:09

Hi IGP not according to marriage cert. from SP.

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


InspectorGreenPen Report 7 Dec 2010 12:07

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

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?



Penny Report 7 Dec 2010 11:59

where have you come across it?
Free BMD doesn't pick up on the name at all.

if its on census it couldbe a mis-spelling.

tell us more .... who what where & when


'Emma' Report 7 Dec 2010 11:45

I have come across a name which is one I've not
heard of before. Her christian name is Uniam. Full
name Uniam Carnegie Bogue. Anyone else heard
of it?
