    I don't know much about the American Revolution, but Biblical seems like a pretty good way to go with regards to naming. Also for men, maybe surnames as they could be given their mother's maiden name as a first name, like Marshall.

    Anna Katherine * Lydia Ellen * Zoe Madeleine * Phoebe ___ * Imogen ___ * Emilia ___
    Samuel * Thomas * Charlie * Reuben * Oliver * George
