    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

    ♀ ~ Alice Cordelia ~ Aurora Seraphina ~ Cassia Elizabeth* ~ Genevieve Astrid ~ Juliet Sunniva* ~

    ♂ ~ Benjamin Axel ~ Jack Sebastian ~ Ronan Oliver ~

    * = Still thinking about and considering other middle names
    (I'm using the 3 syllable pronunciation of Cassia)

    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.
