Timeless, Classical Names
I do adore my share of classical names, but lately it seems the names Amelia, Emma, Alexander, Atticus and others are beginning to get extremly popular and overused. Usually popularity doesn't bother me, and I'll continue to love a name. Such as the name Emma, it was great, great aunt's name and I've always wanted to name my daughter that for her, until I go out and hear thousands of parent's calling for their Emma's. I was wondering if there was still a few undiscovered vintage names that I could possibly fall in love with, list anything that you can think of!Possible Names:
Draco Rupert Finn Aurora Alcyone Rose Perseus Hyperion James Luna Isolde Frost Gale Edmund Lysander Lux Severa

I think Cora is gaining popularity because it's the 'new' Emma, but I'll still suggest it.
Pearl is a name a lot of people seem to like, but few actually use.
Some other ideas:
Bessie or Betsy as a nn for Elizabeth, Ada, Ida, Ina, Lula, Blanche, Dora, Dorothea, Mae, May, Maude, Nancy, Etta, Carrie/Caroline, Estella, Marion, Josie, Mayme/Mamie, Lois, Eula, Ines, Bianca, Pauline, Maxine, Roxanna, Amelia.
It's getting more and more challenging to come up with a unique name from vintage lists.... it's such a popular trend now.
