The Amelia Bedelia books are great, though Amelia Bedelia herself is kind of a bumbling idiot. A well loved bumbling idiot, but still. She is this rich lady's maid and she always does things in a spectacularly wrong way (example: when asked to make a sponge cake, she cuts up sponges and puts them in the cake batter) and the rich lady throws her hands up and says, "oh, Amelia Bedelia!"
I think Elspeth is actually very pretty and usable.
I love Bernadette! I know a brand new baby named J@da Bernadette and I just adore that. I have a serious weakness for feminine versions of masculine names- like Paulette and Jamesina, stuff like that. The less naturally the name translates into a feminine form, the more I seem to like it.
I don't have any boy names like this. Or rather, I probably like boy names that others would think of as hideously enchanting, but I don't recognize them as such.
