    Gatsby style names

    Can anyone think of any quirky, Great Gatsby style names. Names like Zelda and Flora. Vile Bodies by Evelyn Waugh is set around the same time (I think) and has Miles, Agatha, Nina and some cute nick name names. Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance x

    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.
