    • 1927 Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises, Chapter IV:
      Mr and Mrs Aloysius Kirby announced the marriage of their daughter Katherine - I knew neither the girl nor the man she was marrying. They must be circularizing the town. It was a funny name. I felt sure I could remember anybody with a name like Aloysius. It was a good Catholic name.
