    *Hazel- I really like Hazel. I think it's adorable
    *Luella- Eh...
    *Nellie- Meh...
    *Della- This one's nice! You definitely don't here it everyday, and it's refreshing among all of the Ella's out there
    *Mabel- Love Mabel!! One of my favorites
    *Mabelline- I love the way it sounds, but I think it's too connected to Maybelline Cosmetics for use today.
    *Gladys- I don't want to offend anybody, but it's always been my #1 least favorite name.
    *Thelma- To me it sounds like somebody with a speech impediment is trying to say Velma.
    *Opal- Love!!!
    *Constance- Not a fan
    *Elva- It's kind of badass.
    *Betty- It's okay. Beatrix or Beatriz would be a nice way to get Betty as a nn. Is Bedelia too much of a stretch??

    ~Best wishes~

    I think Hazel, Nellie, Mabel, Constance and Betty (Elizabeth and Elsbeth are my favorite full names) are all lovely and perfectly usable. Mabelline is too 'maybe she's born with it' and the others I just don't really like.

    Most of these are real nice! I'm not sure what counts as an old lady name, but I like Rosemary. I also really like Marleen and Marlowe and Margot, whereas most people tell me they're outdated...So.
