Who Shall be Named Constance?

It is very interesting to note the name Constance. My grandmother Annie Herbert went by the name of Constance Annie on her wedding day and when she died. However at birth, she is listed as Annie. She also had a sister, named Constance Mary Ellen who was born with the name Constance. Why then did my grandmother take the name as well? We know that their mother was Constance Annie Caddy nee Carson.

Note that she is registered as Anne. Where did the name Constance come from?

If you’re reading this blog and have any news on why we have two sisters named Constance, I’d love to know.
