Into OLD LADY names today... opinions on these??
(as per my last post) I am starting to really get into old lady names today... Here are some of my family tree old lady names...
Do you think these are usable for a modern baby? Do you like them? Other comments?
No need to worry about my feeling... i don't take offence to opinions! ( my grandpa was one of 14 and most were girls... so Im lucky to have a lot to work with!)

The only ones I don't think are quite ready for a comeback are Gladys, Thelma, and Elva, and the only one I don't think would wear well is Mabelline, thanks to the cosmetics brand. I especially love Hazel, Luella, Opal, Constance, and Betty. My favorite ways to get to Betty as a nickname are Elizabeth and Beatrice/Beatrix.Mama to Caleb Nicholas, Annabel Hope, and Grace Ramona
