Hi Alice,

Great quiz, I think it will take us a while. Alice's adventures were written in the 19th century but I'm presuming its not that. I thought about Jane Eyre and Jude the obsucure but like the others I think you have an Eastern European look. I'm probably wrong to be swayed by the photo but I'll go for Anna (Karenina).

hi nechtan

eastern european, mmmm. my mum has completed a little of the family tried, and found out a few weird connections on my dads side. his grandma was called edith emma, her mother was german also an emma, and her mother too. we never knew this till last year. emma is a german name, although thats more to the north of europe than east. good try but you were pipped to the post.xxx

Clever Sarah!

Sarah mentioned 70's names. It's curious how dated some of them are already. There were loads girls called Julie and Karen at school, but you don't hear them used so much now for babies. Some never go out of fashion do they Emma? ;-)
