In Väsby parish, we find a family that gave their children names in alphabetical order. Unfortunately, there is not an image that shows all the children in the same household examination record.  The names of the children are as follows:

Son – Albin Bertrand Carl David, born 28 June 1865 in Väsby.
Daughter – Evelyn Femi Gotton Henriette, born 13 March 1868 in Väsby.
Son – Imri Johan Knut Lamuel, born 20 October 1870 in Väsby.
Daughter – Maria Nanna Othilia Persi, born 19 December 1872 in Väsby.
Son – Quintus Rurek Sten Thure, born 1 February 1877 in Väsby.
Son – Uno Witus Xeriph Yngvar, born 21 June 1878 in Väsby.
