Which names are english classics for you?
I'm inspired partly by my friend, who plans to name her daughter Lavinia Pearl, partly by going back to TV series such as 'Downton Abbey' and 'Parade's End' on my maternity leave. Which names do you find english classics? I mean - not only typically anglo-saxon ones, but these like Lavinia Pearl, which is (fn) Roman name of course, but sounds very like victorian-edwardian England to me. Can you give some example sets, which sound classically British for you?
I hope it's understandable, I'm fairly sleepy today, thanks to my son:).
