    Nancy, to me, is one of a semi-large class of names (Barbara, Deborah, and Susan, among others) that have *both* very appealing, vintage and historical connotations that would be excellent for a...

    I love Ilse--it's the name of two of my favorite fictional characters, who incidentally both happen to be independent-minded bohemians in pieces set at the turn of the twentieth century--hot-tempered...
