    Names From Books I Recently Bought

    Today, while out shopping with my mum, she bought my sister and I a few books (my sister got the 2nd installment of
    The Maze Runner series, and I got two historical romance novels, aka, my all-time weakness). My two books come from totally different time periods, but the names in one are really standing out for me.

    Lily-Josephine (named similarly to Snow-Drop from the Grimm brothers story)
    Sophie
    Octavius
    Primrose
    Sidonia (renamed herself at 17 from her birth name, Muriel)
    Patrick
    Guy
    Juana
    Isobel
    Ralph
    Marius
    Edgar
    Lionel
    Margaret
    Clive
    Gus
    Gladys
    Helena
    Richard
    Gerald
    Bruno
    Gerda
    Bruce
    Bert
    Hugh
    Madeline
    Daphne
    Phyllis
    Dorothy

    That's all I found so far, do they fit the somewhat historic (1920s-1940s) Aristocratic British image the book is holding?

    I really like these:

    Lily-Josephine
    Isobel
    Margaret
    Richard
    Madeline
    Daphne

    These fit the period better than some of the others, IMO (Marius, Octavius, Primrose, etc).
    Current favorites:
    Cora . Louisa . Lydia . Mary
