Well, not so underused, some maybe even popular. I've been researching in the internet for underused, old-fashioned names that are still femenine, elegant and -why not?- have a "Princess" feeling.

For example, Names like Elizabeth & Margaret I love, but they are way too popular. I don't like names with -a ending either (ei: prefer Amelie to Amelia). Some I'm quite picky.

From the -few- that I've found, that I actually like and would consider using, I've got:

-Scarlett
-Charlotte
-Juliet
-Amelie
-Lavender
-Valerie
-Vivianne
-Evelyn
-Emmeline
-Cecile


So, as you can see, this list is so short that my heart aches. I feel like I'm never going to be able to find a name that I really like.

Now I'm pleading, can you think of any underused old fashion name?

Your input is very much appreciated.

Thanks.
