    Classic names with a contemporary sound?

    I prefer names that have history and that will age well but sound fresh and modern if that makes sense. Would love to hear some of your suggestions! Thanks

    Even though it feels more like a guilty pleasure name for me now, i think Artemis fits that spot of historic yet modern, at least to my ears. Have you looked at any Steampunk-inspired lists? (steampunk combines Victorian-era and modern elements) Names like Clara, Clementine, Artemis, and Gwendolyn all would be considered steampunk, among many others.
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.
