Had to chuckle when I saw that name. grin

The Bliss family came to America in the 1730s, and their children had good, serious Puritan names.

One daughter was named Experience Bliss!

Hey! The Bliss surname originates from the Norman village of Bleys. Originally deBleys, it evolved through Bleys to Bliss and ultimately Bliss. The first historically recorded personage using the modern spelling was a Knight in the court of Henry VIII of England.
