    Hazel--love, warm like Amber, but not really "dated" in a negative sense.
    Luella--I don't like this one, its very "down home" country kind of feel to me, and Ella is wildly popular.
    Nellie--See Luella, Ellie is overused as well
    Della--See Luella, but I do like Adele, Adeline
    Mabel--Warm and inviting like flowers blooming in Spring
    Mabelline--See Mabel, but even more feminine!
    Gladys--I have a soft spot for this one, but I don't think it is "pretty" per se.
    Thelma--Not my cup of tea, makes me think of a thick-built older woman with short hair.
    Opal--I like this! Violet is popular, Jasper, Jewel, Pearl, why not Opal? Makes me think of a beauty with bright watery blue eyes.
    Constance--Nice name, but nn "Connie" is ewwww NMS.
    Elva--This one would probably get some sideways looks, but it is simple and sweet, however, I do picture someone with dark hair parted down the middle with brooding eyes!
    Betty--Adorable qualities, works for young and old, but I prefer Betsy.
    ...Mommy of 2 handsome boys, James Hamilton (3yrs) and Silas Augustine (1.5yrs). New addition 10/14!
    Girls- Blythe, Adeline, Freya, Sabina, Lydia, Vesper
    Boys- Isaac, Archer, Henry, Barnabas, Caleb, Gideon

    I love Hazel, Mabel, Della and Elva from your list! I think they are wonderful names and are very pretty and girly. I'm not so keen on Constance because it a bit too fussy for me.
    My grandfather also had many sisters, I can't remember all of their names but here are some I can remember. I find them quite modern considering they would be in their 80's and 90's.

    Joan
    Ruby
    Rosie
    Sophia

    My grandmother on the other hand was one of 3 girls, they were called Margaret Mildred (My Grandmother), Elsie May and Dorothy nn Dora.

    Some ways to get the nickname Betty are;

    Elisabetta
    Elsbeth
    Bethany
    Bethan (My name, and my dad calls me Betty to tease me!)
    Betsan
    Elizabeth
    Beatrice
    Libby Felicity Annalise Isla Phoebe Carina Violet Martha Ariana | Iowan Macsen Henry Isaac Jude Freddie Aneurin Niall Adair

    Hazel - Beautiful and usable!
    Luella - This name rocks, first time hearing it and it's great
    Nellie - It's okay and usable just not my particular style
    Della - Great!
    Mabel - Cute
    Mabelline - Hmmm... maybe not usable b/c of the make-up company
    Gladys - I think that it's usable, you might just get a few odd looks from people
    Thelma - Spunky!
    Opal - Pretty
    Constance - I really adore this name, unfortunately for me it doesn't work with my last name
    Elva - It's usable, just not my particular style
    Betty - Absolutely Love it! My favorite way to get to Betty is Elizabeth or just naming her Betty
