Z is for:
Zeppelina - I have no Zebediah, Zadok or Zaccariah, Zara, Zena, Zelda, Zipporah or Zandra in my family. However I did come across the name of Zeppilin in "The Sunday Chronicle" for 26th September 1937 (my husband's birthday)
This quirky item bore the intriguing headline "Zeppelin was Her Stork" and told how Zeppelina, celebrating her 21st birthday, was named after a German Zeppelin which crashed near her her home in Essex on the day she was born in 1916
On Unst, Shetland, Peter Smith and his wife Mary had five children - three boys and two girls. The elder two boys, William aged 14 and Francis 10 years old, both died on the same day - 14th March 1919.
On checking further, it was found that they had both drowned whilst they were trying to rescue their pet dog from a lochan, near their house.
I will miss it and thanks must go to Aona.
