Clunky But Cool Names?
I think it's safe to say I love the clunkier girls names (Agnes, Maude, Dorothy, etc), but I'm not sure what everyone else views as being 'clunky but cool' or 'so far out, it's in' when it comes to old fashioned girls' names. Feel free to share your ideas&opinions - I'm very curious to see what you all class as 'so far out, it's in' when it comes to girls names :-)
Florence, Edith, Doris, Alice, Elsie, Lillian, Violet, Mabel, Ada, Evelyn
Eva, Edna, Minnie, Martha, Amelia, Phoebe, Sylvia, Hazel, Agatha, Beatrice
Matthew, Ernest, Louis, Christopher, Andrew, Albert, George, Joshua, James, Harry
Freddie, Henry, Adam, Teddy, Daniel, Percy, Mark, Walter, Stanley, Liam
when you've been fighting for it all your life, you've been struggling every day and night,
it's how a superhero learns to fly

I share your love of old lady names or so clunky they are cool names.
I group them into a few categories:
THE ONES I LOVE, PERIOD, AND WOULD NAME MY CHILD:
THE ONES I APPRECIATE, BUT WOULD NOT NAME MY CHILD:
THE ONES I CONSIDER INTERESTING BUT TRULY UGLY:
Eu- beginning names (eugenics association)
Dorolyne (actually knew a woman named this!)
I find I am sick of flyway names -- misspelled - light as air -- insubstantial -- fluffy. Not good solid names like Dolly and Bonnie and Anne and Tess, but names that sound like cheesy romance novel heroines.
Now, give me a novel with a Mabel, Agatha, and Eluned, and I'm on it!
