    Unusual Old Fashioned Names?

    I love to plan out names that my fiancé and I might use for children one day (we're definitely wanting a big family), and, since we can agree on a lot of boys names, we don't have a problem if we're to have sons, however, we're having a hard time with girls names. My fiancé's last name (and my soon to be last name, as of next year) is Pitts, which, also causes a bit of a problem with names (Harriet and Olive were two of my favourites, but not having a child named Harri Pitts or Olive Pitts!) We are definitely in need of suggestions. We don't like anything too Americanized (Savannah, Sienna, Nevaeh (absolutely loathe Nevaeh, just no.) Taylor, etc), or anything too yewneek (Katharyne, Izobela, etc), and preferably, nothing too common, (top 10 names like Grace, Amelia, Ruby + Lily are out, but also ones that have been in the UK top 100 for eons, like Charlotte, Elizabeth and Alice.)

    Thank you! We seem to like Gaelic/Celtic names (except for the insanely difficult to pronounce ones), and anything that sounds elegant. Some favourites of ours are Araminta, Agatha, Blythe, Melisande, Millicent, Fallon, Ottilie, Kathleen + Elspeth
