I find Sabrina cute in a pixie-ish way and it reminds me of Audrey Hepburn while being much more likable/melodious in sound than Audrey.
I like Katharine much more than Catherine. (But Catherine...

A lot of gorgeous names in this thread, but to me classic is a very particular feel, with consistent use. Not just an antique name I like - I have LOTS of those. But I have a very short list of names...
Caddie for a girl, short for...
Caroline, akin to Callie
Leocadie or Leocadia
For a boy, short for

Hugh - I like Hugh a lot more than Hugo/Harrison etc. but it's so low in the rankings!
Kingsley - Quirky and cute. I've only ever known one.
Antoine - Surprised its so low.
Ephraim - Always...

I like Adele a lot.
Adele Celeste (or Celestine, I go back and forth)
Adele Noemie - I love Noemie though.
Adele Mariamne - this is not French I just like it....

Assuming that I can't like names but "fix" the spellings, and would have to use the name as is, I like:
902 Renee - goes on and off my middle name list to actually use.
913 Azaria - but I'd only...
I like Eulalie more.
I am fond of Opal more than Orla - the image of both soft swirling pastel tones and fire opals is appealing.
I like Euphemia and Euphrasia. (or Euphrasie) but then I'm...
In a truly long-term historic English-centric perspective it isn't classic because it wasn't used much outside of Jewish families in the Middle Ages AND used popularly continuously to now. If you...
Katharine to Kitty is my favourite of the classic Christina/Catherine options.
Kathleen is also cute but more retro than classic. Same goes for Christabel and Christiana, but more antique-quirky...

Jack is, traditionally, a nickname for John.
Female forms of John include but are not limited to: Jane, Johanna, Jeanne, Juanita, Joan, Sinead... and that's just the ones I like, as there's about...
These are all great.
I'm not huge on Yvonne, but you reminded me of Yvette. :)
Yes, perhaps I should have made my own X, Ximena (which I rather like).
Octavia IS pretty, thank you for reminding me there's one other O name I like!
Safe and normal isn't my own forte...
This is my ABC to prove that I'm not ALWAYS about Eurydice or Zephirine. These are either quite popular or quite classic names I really like, one for each letter. Nothing that would be super...
I'd actually agree with this even though I'm voting Maura - I think Moira DOES look spunkier/livelier. Maura feels more somber to me, I just happen to like it's somber grounded sound.
I prefer Maura but I am always torn between Maura and Mara.

Dulcie is a very pale pink with white glitter, like colourized sugar.
Emma is pink and cloying.
Nina is that subtle beige-pink of ballet slippers.
Samantha is Hello Kitty pink.
Emma seems a lot...
I like Eleanor much more than Elisabeth. The "s" in Elisabeth is quite off-putting to me.
Eleanor is quite elegant and regal though. My favourite nicknames for Eleanor are Elle or Ella.

Sybil is far and away my favourite of your options. (also love Sibyl). It has an elegant history and a nice meaning, don't mind the hack book. I have Sibyl on my own list.
I don't mind Sophie Ann...

I like Gretchen well enough. I really can't stand Greta though.
Gretchen has a tailored sound and doesn't sound over-sweet. I also like -n ending names for both genders, as long as it's not a...
Cy for Cyrus I really like
Moss - was originally a NN for Moses/Moshe, now might be mistaken for hipster nature name?
Ike, Izzy - The classic old Jewish man NNs for Isaac/Isidore/Isaiah.
Isidore - itself one...
