Do you disagree with any of Nameberry's "Names No Girl May Be Cool Enough For"?
I don't know if this link works haha so I'll just type them out;
Do you think any of these would actually work for a baby? I could see Shirley, Myrna, Mehitabel, Joyce, Irma (I actually know a few Irmas, granted they're Bosnian so maybe it's cooler over there), Griselda, Ethel, and Doris making a comeback.Audrey Cecilia - Jude Alexander - Christian Nathaniel - Violet Annabelle - Felicity Charlotte - and introducing Isaac Benjamin

Although I don't personally like Ethel, I know she's been making a comeback in some circles like Nameberry, especially since Lily Allen used it, so I don't think it belongs here.
I also disagree with Myrna, which I actually think is quite pretty, and Joyce, which I think makes a nice "connector" middle name, even though she may not be ready for primetime again as a first name yet.
I could also potentially see Doris, Eunice and Shirley coming back in the future. The others, I basically agree with (although I have a soft spot for Ortensia, the Latinate form of Hortense, which I think removes a lot of the negative qualities about that name).
