I do love old fashioned names. But would never want my child to have the same name as another in their class. I'm leaning toward these:
Mae
Harriet
Isabella
Rosalie
Arabella
Noah
Jacob
Theador

Wow, I can't believe that my name wasn't listed, "Virginia" I love it.
June 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterVirginia
Hey alex... Just to let you know i think alexandra is a great name... you have nickname variety... Alex Lexi Alexa Alexia Xandra

"do not under any condition call your child alexandra. I am 12 and i hate it so much! there are way too many alexs and so i have trained myself not to respond when someone calls my name in case its another alex. so many times i have said 'hi im alex' then the other person says 'hi im alex too' i am going to beg my parents to let me change it because i want my own individuality and you only live once and i dont want to spend the rest of my life with a name i hate."

I have called my wee girl: Lexie Elia. Nothing old fashioned but I really like it!

Hi, I'm 13
Nice list.
I do not recommend giving a child a common name with a stupid unusual spelling, like me. My name is Sofie. Often, when people write my name down, I don't bother correcting them. It takes too much effort. Back when I did bother, these are some of the variants that came out:
Soffie
Sofi
Sophi
Sofia
Sofphie
Sophfie
very boring and lengthy task correcting these people. All my friends just call me 'Mel' or 'Mellie' anyway (this is a play on my last name, and also short for Melody, because I play the flute. Long story how it happened).

I am LOVING the list! :)
And i don't know whether you agree but 'Maeve' is a pretty cool old fashioned(ish) name.

I think it should be added to the list DEFONATLY! Hahaha.
Thanks for some great ideas.
