Old Fashioned vs. But Not vs. Too Formal

Hi! We are expecting our first child and we’re a little stuck. We want something that is old fashioned/classic and will age well, but we don’t want anything that sounds overly formal, if that makes any sense. We really need suggestions for both genders (only first names, though), please help! Thank you!

Genie's Mailbag

Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
