Man, you have a big family! Let's see, off the top of my head: Linda, Ellen, Jean, Lois, Lorraine, Jaqueline, Michelle, Diane, Diane, Doris. Maternally there were no sisters to give me any great aunts, but I did have a great great Auntie Bessie and Sadie.

It's interesting that one of your great aunts and I share a name - Mina! I have only two aunts: Barbara and Pagona, and I do not know all of my great aunts, but the ones I do know are named: Chrisoula and Gianna.

I know all of my aunts names (Tamar, Joyce, Pauline, Jill, Claire, May, Sue) but I'm not sure about great aunts. I know one was called Blanche. She was my only paternal great aunt. As for maternal, my mum came from quite a big family. I think she had an aunt Flo but I can't remember the others! I think there were more uncles than aunts.
