This list makes me happy!
Nancy- This name feels really fresh to me. I am so ready to meet a baby Nancy. IMO it is cute for a little one, but works for an older woman just as well. I think of Nancy Drew, I think of Nancy Sinatra, this gives it a campy vintage feel, in a good way.
Bryony- This is pretty sounding, but makes me think of names like Brenna, Brielle, Brianne, Brian, Byron, all names that feel 90s to me. This is like a 2013 version of Brianna to me. Like Brianna, but more naturey feeling & modern
June- Gorgeous & simple. I love it. I also love Jean & Joan. And they both more easily adopt the -ie pet names while Juney doesn't quite work.
Gloria- A bit stuffier than your other vintage choices, but still very nice.
Sally- I love this, but wonder if Sarah nn Sally isn't a better option. I can't use it cause Sal means animal fat in Russian & my husband & in-laws all speak Russian as their primary language. It has the same charm for me as Nancy.
Others that you might like- Annette, Lana, Thisbe, Briar, Jade, Jude, Joan, Jean, Eugenie, January, Juniper, Ramona, Ruby, Holly, Dolly, Darcy.

I really like Nancy and Sally! I have a friend who spells it "Sallie" and it's adorable. Nancy I think is a little like Dianne or Dianna- thought of as a grownup's name, but totally ready for a comeback on kids! Nan is adorable, too, as a nickname.

Nancy- I love this name because of Nancy Drew. I think, if I were to use it, I would use it as a middle.
June- I love June. It's so sweet in a single syllable.
Gloria- This name has been growing on me lately. It's so pretty, and I associate it with Morning Glory flowers which are so beautiful.
Sally- A bit boring to me.

My favorites are June and Gloria. I love June so much, that it's my 2nd daughter's name and I love it more and more as time goes on! By the way @ Taz, my then-2-year-old started calling the baby "Juney" from the start, and surprisingly it does kind of work as a nickname, or at least as a "pet" name. Bryony is NMS and Sally is pretty, but IMO it would need an exciting or interesting MN to jazz it up.
