Girl's names

I forgot about the girls....Reeve, Maeve, Celia, Elsa, Elsie, Esme, Cora, Nora, Mary, Georgia and Jane are some nice 'old' names. Jane is one of my favorite names

One more boy's name...Martin!

Don't name a boy Solomon or Benjamin with a family name that ends in "man" or Lemuel if the name starts with "L." I just imagined: Lemuel Liberman. Eeeeesh.

For a girl, all the beautiful old lady names:

Adelaide
Iris
Belle
Beatrice
Sophia
Rose

Wow, this thread has become a real treasure chest of old fashioned names! We still haven't made a final decision but I have a lot more ideas now! I will definitely post after the birth and let you all know what we decide on in the end. Thanks to all of you!

I dont know if someone else has already said it, but we loved the name *GUS* for a boy (had a girl ), later I found out I had a great grandfather by the name of Gustav, so it turned out to be a family name anyway . Have fun.

My grandfather's names were Huston (pronounced like Houston, TX) and Rudolph. I like them both! Other ideas: Eugene, Manford, Harmon
