    Question Are there any classic names left that aren't overused?

    I am really drawn to classic names but so many of them are so in right now, Ella, Grace, Clara, Lilly, etc... Obviously there is a reason for them being so "in" -they're all cute! But I like to be a LITTLE different. Or just not common. I thought the name Gemma fit the bill; I really love it but my husband is NOT on board. Any other ideas for us? Thanks!

    How about:
    Eliza
    Jane
    Cecily
    Cecilia
    Georgia
    Rosalie
    Ellery or Elodie
    Lila

    Or you could go for a classic that is less trendy like Elizabeth or Catherine or Margaret or Frances
    Evan Robert Stephen and Elizabeth Victoria Christianna

    Maybe Amy and Amanda. They're at 143 and 226 respectively.
    While they had a 70s-90s run, they've always been in the top 1000, so they're pretty classic.

    Laura and Diana. 273 and 203 respectively. Similar profile to Amy and Amanda, different feels.

    Johanna and Louisa. Feel timeless to me, but aren't even in the top 1000.

    Pp's suggestion of Cecilia - it has been remarkably stable across the entire duration of records (with a high around 190 and a low around 401).

    How popular is overused for you?

    Julia, Lucy, Maria, Mary, and Marie all come to mind too.
