Girls names vs. after people I admire

Hi everyone. I’m going to be raising my daughter alone so please no comments about what the father thinks of the names I’m considering. I have put together a list of names I love which have some historical background etc. Please let me know what you like or do not like about them. I will put them in a comment for you to take a look at. Best wishes~ Annika

Caroline and Adelaide are my favorites from your list! I’m not too fond of the rest.

Love Carrie and Emily(just have always liked these names, two of my favorites), and Ruth (I think this is one of the most beautiful "old" names there is)
Like Katherine, Jane, and Erin
The rest are too old fashioned, sorry

I really hate Frederica, Constance, Matilda, Vita, Vida, Olive, Beatrice, Wilhelmina, Agnes, Winifred, and Virginia. They are all old lady names...not classic, old. That being said I LOVE Caroline, Edith, Eleanor, and Margaret. They’re all classic while not being boring or old. They also all have cute nickname options.

DON’T use.Caroline. It doesn’t sound pretty at all, it just reminds me of the hideous woman who killed Rachel Barber may she rest in peace. I also whole heartedly disagree with the anonymous poster. Olive, Vida, and Beatrice among many of the others are not old lady names at all. They are considered posh these days whereas Caroline and Margaret are quite "boring". Margot is the new Margaret and as first said Caroline isn’t suitable imo not to mention I am from a big city and Caroline just seems small town, it doesn’t have any wow factor what so ever. Just things to think about! GL

I really like Margaret and Emily! Adelaide and Eleanor are very pretty too! You have a lot of great names - besides Vita, Vida, Winnifred and Wilhelmina you won’t go wrong with any. GL!

Love the meaning and sound of Vida, I find it whimsical and romantic while still being a strong feminine name.

Annie is my favourite. I also like Josephine, Adelaide, and Matilda
I don’t like Vita, Vida, Agnes, or Winnifred

Jane
Caroline
Beatrice

Though all your names are really nice.
