The Great Gatsby was first published in 1925.
You could easily look at the SSA popularity list of that year and see if there is anything that appeals to you....http://www.ssa.gov/cgi-bin/popularnames.cgi
or play with a range of names from that era start in 1910 and going as far as 1935.
I tend to think of names like Irene, Frances, Sylvia, Alice, Betty, Helena, Harvey, Edward, Richard, Arthur and Raymond....if my husbands has no vote, then....
