    Lead-weights that land with a thud ...

    ... are the names that intrigue me most lately.


    Examples:

    Agatha, Antonia, Augusta, Benedicta, Bernardine, Cornelia, Edwina, Georgina, Henrietta, Josephine, Philomena, Rosamund, Thomasina, Wilhelmina, Winifred


    Could you help me think of more as heavy or heavier than these?
    Archibald | Barnabas | Bartholomew | Ephraim | Hezekiah | Jonah | Noble | Obadiah | Silas | Zebulon

    C o l o n i a l | N a m e s

    Bathsheba | Cornelia | Esther | Felicity | Hephzibah | Lydia | Mehetabel | Priscilla | Prudence | Sapphira

    My grandmother and her mother both had heavy names to me: Gertrude and Octavia.

    I love some of those a lot! I love a name with weight.

    Gytha, Theodora, Nerida, Romilda, Rosmerta, Ceridwen, Leocadia, Angharad, Andromeda, Ingrid, Zelda, Desdemona, Alexandrina, Jocasta, Lucasta.

    For whatever reason, the letter d seems to really lend some gravity.
