Aleta’s Family Tree – from Erhard & Eloda to Autumn & Amanda

A while back I posted about baby names in Minnesota, using as my source an article by Aleta Capelle.

A few days later, Aleta herself contacted me and told me about the interesting names in her family tree:

My aunt was Eloda (Eloda Wood, no less), and my dad was Erhard. My brothers are Avery and Allerd and my sister is Amber.

Aleta also has two daughters: one is named Autumn ( “about 23 years ago, that was fairly uncommon, but I’m seeing it more and more these days”) and the other is Amanda ( “not as imaginative, but it starts with an A!”).

Thanks, Aleta!
