Uncommon classics? Names from the mid- to late 1800's?
Louisa/Louise are two of my favorite names right now. I love that neither are in the top 1,000 but both are recognizable. I consider both to be classics, along with other names on my list (Josephine, Margaret, Elizabeth, etc.).
Are there any other names that fit the criteria of being uncommon but recognizable, classic, or old fashioned?
The name doesn't have to be outside the top 1000 but preferrably outside the top 750 and not rising quickly. I don't have an opposition to popular names but I'm just looking for fresh ideas because none of the names I've been able to come up with seem like "the" name.
Here are a few I've considered:
Lucy (and Lusine [loo-see-neh], Lucia, etc.)
Ellie (and many names that lend the Ellie nickname including Noelle and Eleanor)
Lily (and names to give the Lily nickname Lilia, Lillian, etc.)
Eve/Eva for the NN Evie (and Evangeline but I want to use Josephine in the future so Evangeline is out)
No names containing Anne. Middle name will be Mae. Apparently, I'm also looking for a name that is easily nicknameable, too.

Eleanor Mae (More popular but you have Ellie on your list, and Ellie is top 100)
Geneva Mae (Evie/Eva)
