Saturday Night Challenge - on Sunday Morning!

Randy Seaver [GeneaMusings] gave us another great Saturday Night Challenge last evening:

"Hey, genealogy fans - it's Saturday Night - time for more Genealogy Fun!

In honor of Surname Saturday (the new, official genealogy blogging prompt for Saturdays), let's consider this, assuming you accept the challenge to play along (is it Mission Impossible?):

1) What is the most unique, strangest or funniest combination of given name and last name in your ancestry? Not in your database - in your ancestry.

2) Tell us about this person in a blog post, in a comment to this blog post, or in a comment on Facebook.

3) Okay, if you don't have a really good one - how about a sibling of your direct ancestors? "

That being said, here is my great contribution to the unusual name:

Ima Bean [b.1942-d.1942] Unfortunately little Ima only lived 8 days. As far as I know, her mother is still living, so I won't list her parents here. [They are a part of my father's family].

The joke for me was always that this relative should have named his daughters [there were 3 of them] Ima, Ura, and Shesa. [The other two girls have perfectly "normal" names!]

So... what's the name that is unusual in your family's ancestry???
