    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?
    Agatha | Apollonia | Cornelia | Guinevere | Henrietta | Josephine | Lavinia | Minerva | Parthenia | Thomasina | Winifred

    V i n t a g e | C h a r m

    Archibald | Augustus | Barnabas | Bartholomew | Cornelius | Ebenezer | Hezekiah | Ignatius | Leonidas | Sylvester | Tiberius

    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.
