Like many writers of fiction (especially historical fiction) I have a deep love of names, and I’m always on the lookout for interesting ones. Old documents are the best source, I find. These names came from property descriptions in the early 1800s. I’ll probably use some of them sooner or later.
Gideon Bagwill (sounds like a Middle Earth name to me, no?)
Unfortunately, the best names are often hard to use well. Case in point is the real personage Dr. Valentine Seaman, whose name caused such a ruckus among my beta readers than I had to change it. Very sad.
