I am fond of the name Jasper for a boy, and am looking for girl names that have the same vintage-cool factor without being stuffy. I could imagine Jasper at a rock concert...but not a...

I have no further suggestions, except for the Upright Elegance list on British Baby Names, which I know you've looked at! Just letting you know I'm following this thread with interest.
Cordelia is gone - it is lovely but in the end I just did not like the sound...and that's an important part! I also see what you mean about Lyra Georgiana Rose seeming...
So I whittled it down to Cordelia and Imogen, then mistakenly did a bit more research about them! I've not read their particular plays, only Macbeth, Hamlet, Othello, Twelfth Night, Romeo and Juliet...
You know, I think you may be right! I have until mid-November to decide (which is soon, actually) but I do feel as if I am leaning toward Imogen. Although Cordelia is a name I might regret not using...
So my mother, when queried about her favorite of the three said she liked Imogen the best "because it is so different"! I will admit I was born super early and my parents hadnt even thought about...
Thanks Mischa! You've always given really great suggestions, I appreciate your opinion!

@ebonyeden: I agree with you and Lemon that while Viola is a lovely name, it doesn't seem quite "me". There is also the odd feeling of it being basically the Latin name for flower, yet I've...
I am a college student changing my name from Emily. It is classic, pretty and timeless but I know 5 others just at college. I have discovered I prefer names that are old-fashioned with roots, or...

I am short on time so can't list the names that caught my eye but I can give my other favorites to make the whole "vintage" category a bit less vague;

Here is what I love about it;
-it has vintage grace and flair
-it isn't popular
-it has literary connections
What I don't like, or am trying to like more than I do, is the sound. The "r" and...
Oh these are lovely and pity I didn't check the blog before posting! Calliope and Althea especially are gorgeous...now I'm wondering if any berries have personal favorites?
I am looking for girl names that are either titles of poems or appear in poems! NOT non-proper names like Sonnet, but ones like;
"Evangeline" by Henry Wordsworth Longfellow
"The Rape of the Lock"...
I love these:
Perhaps I should be looking at old lady names too?
I'm looking for girl names that evoke a "lady of the manor" type of feel. I suppose this correlates to 1900s names (from England) but I don't have access to the Expert Name Voyager feature on BNW so...

I've just picked up "Wildwood" by Colin Meloy and the heroine is called Prudence, nicknamed Prue! The novel The Camomile Lawn features a Calypso (that lives up to her name!) I'm also enchanted by...
I love almost all of the names on the Vintage themed lists for girls (I find boy names much easier to love) but am having trouble finding more sepia-toned names that do not end in "a". I have...
I have a core list of names that I love, and would like to add more in order to begin making combinations! My style is vintage, feminine (maybe a hint of frill) and strong. The NB blog post Ecentric...
I am changing my name, not naming a child. I am 19 years old, live in the Pacific Northwest (USA) and am pursuing a career in social entrepreneurship and write novels in my spare time! With that in...
I have a request; I am looking for girl names that do not sound like many others. My theory is that even if that name is popular, like Jasper or Penelope, it will still sound distinct because of its...

Black Swan, played by Natalie Portman. Delicate, feminine, has some backbone but has a hard time showing it.
@mischa; Perfect! Since Beatrix is the original, I feel better about it now! Not like I'm stressing out unnecessarily, but... ;)
@pansy Funny! I detest Trixie, it has vague negative associations for me, but then again I'm also way after the Trixie Belden series generation! I'd be Bea, Beattie or Birdie!
It is! And I suppose since the X version is a variation I can still look to Dante's Beatrice and Shakespeare's as inspiration/role models...although the more classic version is pretty! Based on most...
