Trying to build up a list, and I think I've FINALLY found my style - vintage revival. In other words, if a name peaked in 1995, I likely won't want it, if it peaked in 1925, I'll likely adore it (within reason of course, I definitely would never use Gertrude or Mildred). I'd love some suggestions to add to my list;

Maude
Mabel
Clara
Olive
Agnes
Rosalind
Violet
Hattie
Ada
Millicent
Edith
Dorothea
Beatrice
Adeline
Agatha
Adelaide
Evelyn
Florence
Frances
Iris
Josephine
Madeline
Martha

i love names like that too (and I do kind of like Gertrude too, but would never use it).

 

I love Olive and Edith.

Vintage names are not generally my style so i've tried t put a different perspective on this and more like' if i were a child today, which of these names would i perfer to be called?' and my personal answers would be:

 

Madeline- definately 100%my favourite. Its classic but still widley used.

Evelyn- With a cute nickname like Evie this name can age gracefully.

Adelaide/ Adeline- As above with Addy in place.

Millicent- although i don't like Millicent as much as the others its still has options for a cute nickname Millie.

Ada- I really like this in place of Ava

Violet- Making quite a comeback it isnt a name that is still left behind

Clara- I really like Clara and think it has the right amount of age to it. Works perfectly well on baby/teen/ young adult/ elderly.
