After the battle of the Alma 1854 during the Crimean War the Manx soldiers swore a pact that henceforth their firstborn sons would be named Alma. (The female name Alma stemmed from the same battle).

 

It was also a pact that thereafter the male descendants of their firstborn sons would be named Alma.

 

Anyone know any male Manx ....Almas?

 

There was/is an Inkerman Faragher and the battle of Inkerman was also part of the Crimean War.

 

Maybe the tradition varied a little?

If I was a Manx wife, and my husband came back from the Crimean War and told me I had to call my son Alma, I'd tell him to sling his hook.
