    'Sound of Music' feeling names?

    I adore the names of the children in the Sound of Music
    For anyone who's not familiar with them all they are Liesl, Friedrich, Louisa, Kurt, Brigitta, Marta and Gretl.

    Louisa is my favourite and one I would consider using, but I obviously couldn't use any of the other names because the reference would be too obvious to most people

    So I'm looking for names that have the same sort of vibe, I'm guessing old style/classic German or Austrian names might be a good bet

    Anybody have any suggestions for either gender?

    My twin sister's name is Gretel and no one has ever pointed out the Sound of Music reference. Mostly it's the Hansel and Gretel reference
    I personally love her name!
    Sorry for any repeats:
    Adelheid/Heidi
    Anneliese
    Eleanora

    You could definitely use Kurt or Marta, anyway. These are simple, German and quirky, if it's a repeat it means I second it You might need a real-life Austrian or German to say whether they're the right level of old-fashioned, though.

    Maybe the actual names of the Von Trapp children could be inspiring:

    Rupert
    Agathe
    Maria
    Werner
    Hedwig
    Johanna
    Martina

    After Maria and Georg married they had:

    Rosemarie
    Eleonore
    Johannes
