    Favorite classic/traditional names?

    I've been a name fanatic for a long time, and it seems that the older I get, the more I gravitate towards classic and traditional names.

    Lately, I've been fond of Cecily and Beatrice for girls, and James and Nicholas for boys (although I probably couldn't use Nicholas).

    What are your favorite classic/traditional names?
    Abigail, Beatrice, Jemima, Hazel, Matilda, Svea

    Isaac, James, Jasper, Julius, Sebastian, William

    I have always liked the biblical names for boys. I guess my boy name taste is far more traditional than my girl name taste. My favourite classics;
    Gabriel, Henry, Arthur, Eli
    Helena, Pearl, Elizabeth, Mary, Estella, Esther
