Celebrate Valentine's Day With Love-inspired Names
Posted by jamie

Ancestry.ca searched its collection of records for the most amorous Canadian names. Some of the results are romantic while others are downright strange, but one thing is clear — these Canadians' parents were smitten with these monikers.

In the 1861 Canada census, Ancestry.ca found these romantic results:
  • Love Bully, a 20-year-old woman born in Upper Canada, living in Dover, Kent, Canada West.
  • Cupid Martin, a 35-year-old man originally from the United States, working as a yeoman in Raleigh County, Ontario.
  • Amor Moran, a 24-year-old Irish-born woman found living with her siblings in a Montreal house with four other families.
  • Venus Antahia, a 60-year-old widower who lived alone in Laprairie, Canada East.
  • The first name of Valentine shows up 580 times. One hundred people have Valentine as a surname.
  • Fourteen people have Amor as first name, while 18 have Amor as a surname.
  • Nine people were named after Paris, the city of love.

Other lovely names:
  • Love Burns, 13, can be found living in Harbourville, Nova Scotia, in 1871 Canada census.
  • Lover Woo can be found at 91 Elgin St. in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, in the 1911 Canada census.
  • Bad Heart Lasuisse, a 70-year-old Sioux widower, can be found living with five family members in the Territories in the 1901 Canada census.
  • Romance Turrell married John Obrien on Christmas Day 1878, according to Ontario marriage records.
Have a happy Valentine's Day! Spoil your sweetie with a gift from ShopFamilyTree.com, or treat yourself.
