    Colonial Names for Girls?

    I know the virtue names, and the biblical names, but, does anyone know where I can find other lists of Colonial names/Georgian names (Colonial would've been American names, Georgian would've been the United Kingdom)? Or can anyone suggest some more for me? I absolutely love names from this era, but I'm struggling to create my list!
    ♂: Thomas Darcy ○ Henry Alexander ○ Matthew Louis ○ George Benedict ○ Louis William ○ James Albert
    Charlie Lucas ○ Christopher Joel ○ Allen Theodore ○ Andrew Lachlan ○ Darcy Emmett ○ Ernest Joshua ○ Daniel Thomas
    Mark ○ Albert ○ Patrick

    ♀: Florence Eliza ○ Emily Georgiana ○ Eleanor Daisy ○ Sybil Cordelia ○ Edith Jessica ○ Mary Josephine ○ Beatrice Lily ○ Harriet Sophia ○
    Lavinia Pearl ○ Evelyn Rosalie ○ Nellie Bridget ○ Martha Felicity ○ Elsie Kathleen ○ Marigold Violet ○ Doris Amelia

    I used to work at a Revolutionary War history museum, and these are some names I've come across of women at the time (a lot of classic English/biblical names, with some outliers):

    Elizabeth nn Betsy
    Susanna nn Suky
    Abigail
    Mary
    Keziah
    Hannah
    Josephine
    Polly
    Dorothy nn Dolly
    Lucy
    Mercy
    Mary
    Sarah

    ...and then of course there's our American Girl Felicity

    That job would've been a dream job for me, LOL! I love the 1700's and early 1800's(before the Victorian era). It seemed like such a classy, elegant time period. :-) I love their naming styles as well!
