This is a puzzler. I have an ancestor named Parazade, born in 1847. Her name was semi popular in the southern U.S. (Virginia, Kentucky, etc.)during the mid to late 1800's. From at least 1820 to 1870. There are no records on any of the name sites I've been to that show origin or meaning or etymology. It's as though this name just abruptly disappeared. It hasn't been in the census files since about 1920. Very odd. Anybody with any clues, please email me.
