    Worthy of a Revival?

    There are some Georgian/Victorian names that I like/love, but, I'm not sure if they'd be seen as fresh and gorgeous choices for a little girl now, or if they simply stink of mothballs and should forever stay in the 1700/1800's. What do you think of these?

    Agatha
    Agnes
    Araminta
    Augusta
    Beatrice
    Beatrix
    Bridget
    Cecilia
    Christabel
    Clementine
    Cora
    Cordelia
    Cosima
    Delphine
    Dorothy
    Edith
    Eleanora
    Estella
    Eugenia/Eugenie
    Flora
    Florence
    Frances
    Georgiana
    Georgina
    Gwendoline
    Harriet
    Helena
    Henrietta
    Hermione
    Honora/Honoria
    Iris
    Isadora
    Ivy
    Jane
    Jemima
    Josephine
    Keziah
    Lucinda
    Mabel
    Margaret
    Margot
    Marianne
    Martha
    Matilda
    Mercy
    Millicent
    Octavia
    Olive
    Rosamond
    Rosemary
    Susannah
    Sylvia
    Tabitha

    I know some are currently popular in the UK (Harriet, Martha, Matilda, Ivy and Florence are all top 100 names in England and Wales right now), but that aside, what do you think?

    Well, I know there's a lot of people on here who love this style of names. I don't hate all of them, but I definitely haven't warmed up to a lot of them.

    Here's the one's I really like:

    Beatrice/Beatrix - love it!
    Susannah - love it
    Olive - like it a lot
    Mercy - way underused IMO
    Cora/Cordelia - nice, I like Cora by itself a bit more though
    Gwendoline - though I prefer the -lyn spelling
    Iris/Ivy - I like both
    Jane - nice and simple
    Margot - pretty
    Rosamond - meh
    Eleanora - okay



    Helena - I'm on the fence about this one, I don't hate it, but I don't really love it either.
    Flora/Florence -on the fence about this one too, it's okay, but I don't absolutely love it.
    Tabitha - it's a beautiful name, but I knew one who was a pain in the butt so that colors my view
    Keziah - I like this one a lot, but it's definitely more out there than some.
    Isadora - pretty, but definitely on the Isabelle bandwagon
    Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
    Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin
