In addition to Evelyn Waugh, check out books/writings of the same period by Nancy Mitford, Somerset Maughm, Graham Greene, Vita Sackville-West, Virginia Woolf, etc.

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....
