The following article appeared in the Dundee Evening Telegraph on Thursday 11 June, 1885, concerning the use of hero-names for Victorian children.
For FitzRoy Somerset, 1st Baron Raglan (pictured) who was commander of the British troops sent to the Crimea in 1854. The name was first registered in England and Wales in the fourth quarter of 1854 when it was given to five children. This most likely followed the Battle of Balaclava in October 1854. The following year fourteen children were registered, and the name continued to be used intermittently up until 1971.
This is seemingly a spelling mistake or typing-error. It is most likely meant to be Arnaud for General Jacques St. Arnaud, the French colleague of Lord Raglan with whom he jointly commanded an Anglo-French force in the Crimean war. St Arnaud died shortly after commanding at the Battle of the Alma in September 1854. Arnaud (and spelling variants Arnand, Arnauld and Arnard) were -- like Raglan -- first registered in the fourth quarter of 1854. One girl was even named Arnauda Isabella.
Osman Pasha was an Ottoman field marshal and the hero of the Siege of Plevna in 1877. Though Osman had been registered occasionally before this date (averaging one registration per year), in 1877 alone 27 children were given the name, followed by 90 children in 1878. Many were boys but there was at least one girl (Osman Clara). Others were named Osman Plevna, Osman Pasha or Osman Sulieman.
Sir Garnet / Garnet Wolseley
Named for Garnet Wolseley, 1st Viscount Wolseley who is considered one of the most influential and admired British generals having served in Burma, the Crimean War, the Indian Mutiny, China, Canada and widely throughout Africa. Two boys were named Sir Garnet in 1883. Garnet Wolseley was registered 31 times from 1874 to 1900 with the peak year in 1882.
