    vintage 40's and 50's names?

    The -ettes feel very much this period to me:
    Suzette, Yvette, Annette, Juliette etc.

    '50s style and bombshells:
    Jacqueline, Raquel, Bettie, Jayne, Brigitte, Marilyn.

    The -annes:
    Suzanne & Roxanne would be my favourites but Joanne and Maryanne count too.

    Judith NN Judy is one I quite like, along with Yvette NN Yvie. I like Susie and Roxy, but the long forms I favour are not the most '50s variants. (I would probably use Susannah and Roxana over Susan/Suzanne and Roxanne). Speaking of nicknames, Cindy deserves to be here too.
