A stylish, older girl name
I am searching for name and I would love to hear some suggestions. The name should be "older", or at least "old sounding", preferably something that dates back to the medieval times or something around the 1600-1800. I would like something that's sounds stylish, posh and elegant, if possible. The surname is "Arkwright" so if it could fit with the surname, that would be great!
Thank you so much for the help!

Belphoebe - Spenser's Faery Queene reference, dates to 1590. Probably not ever that popular on actual girls though.
Viola, Beatrice, Juliet, Imogen - My favourite Shakespearean girls names.
Araminta, Amarantha, Amaryllis
And then the ones that date to the middle ages but have never really gone away so they don't sound so forcefully antique. My favourite of these is Jane. Then Katharine/Catherine, Caroline, Elizabeth/Isabel, Clare, Marie/Mary, and Martha. One could say they sound more classic than specifically posh, but I think they sound regal.
