    Re: Pin up Names:)

    I absolutley love this list thank you :)

    As whole names the following names have always been stunning to me.

    Veronica Lake
    Sophia Loren
    Mae West
    Vivian Blaine - new to me. I actually really love Vivian Lane.

    First names I love from this list -

    Clara
    Mae
    Gloria
    Alice
    Ruby
    Ginger
    Toby - I love Toby for a girl, of course Toby wasn't her real name. I had to look her up out of curiosity but a lot of names aren't these ladies "real" names.
    Lauren
    Vivian
    Ava
    Jane
    Lena
    Veronica
    Hedy - I LOVE this name.
    Viveca
    Marilyn
    Marie - so very underused as a first name.
    Lana
    Pier
    Brigitte - but I prefer the Bridget or Brigid spelling.
    Mara
    Cleo - the only Cleo I know is a man in his 70's or 80's
    Olivia
    Brooke
    Linnea

    Louise isn't one of my favorite names but Louise Brooks is one of my favorite girls from this list. Eloise Brooks would make a pretty name.
