    Something super-retro: Alva, Dita, Mavis and friends.

    What would you add to this list? Short, sweet retro (kinda dated) names that feel sort of bad-girl to me, and I can picture perfectly on Marisa Tomei's character in My Cousin Vinny - http://abnormaluse.com/wp-content/up...risa-tomei.jpg (she's actually Mona Lisa in the film, I guess I'm looking for something similar but less Italian).

    Alva
    Dita
    Mavis
    Lana
    Una
    Lux
    Susie
    Nancy

    any suggestions?
