    Selma, Vera, what else?

    Ok so i was going through some genealogy my mom has done, and two names on my family tree are Selma and Vera and I'm loving both.

    But NB's database is suggesting Velma as similar, which....no. Velma is a geeky member of the Scooby Doo team, not (to me) a real person's name. And, to me, its nothing like the lovely, flowery Selma.

    Selma and Vera make me think of wildflowers and handwritten letters with lovely flourished cursive, and tiny graceful ballerinas.

    What are names similar in feel to Selma and Vera? I love that they both feel old (since they're both great + grandparents to me) but don't feel geeky and clunky like the suggested Velma and Zelda?
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

    I guess it's all in the eye of the beholder because Selma sounds just as clunky,nerdy to me as Velma.
