What’s your favorite classic girls’ name?

Oh my goodness!
O Baby Names — names that start or end with the letter o — is one of our longest lists, with 16 pages of names totaling more than 150 selections.
In fact, we believe there’s an O name to suit every sensibility and style.
Use the name on the birth certificate that came with your Cabbage Patch doll?
Or maybe you renamed your dolls, or had more generic models for which you picked creative new names.
Or perhaps you didn’t play with dolls at all, but named your beanie babies, pet mice, or Playskool people?
Here’s my true name confession: We almost named our youngest son Pike.
So sue me.
I still like it. Sometimes, about as often as I miss that bright orange sweater I gave away in 1994, I wish we’d actually named him that. We like fish! In fact, little coulda-been-Pike grew into a boy who loves to fish!

I could confess to other name indiscretions I contemplated but now it’s your turn to tell all.
Did you spell your name with an i at the end with a little heart drawn over it when you were 13?
Attempt to change your name to Sigourney when you were in college?

Which classic boys’ name do you love the best?
But for this Question of the Week, you can only pick one.
