    Classy & cool :)

    Looking for names that are simple, feminine and sophisticated. I would like the name to age well but not necessarily have that old lady feel if that makes sense. Not looking for anything trendy or made up. I prefer a name that will stand the test of time. Please include a short description of what you like about each name. Thank you and I look forward to hearing your responses

    Odette- the good swan from swan lake (I believe), it is simple and sleek though it does sound like 'odious'.
    Harper- It is pretty popular but it is a classic. Think Harper Lee
    Diana- Goddess of the moon. I think it is really beautiful but understated (Artemis is also the name for the moon goddess though I'm not sure which one is greek and which one is roman).

    Cora was the first name that popped to mind! Here's what I thought of.

    Cora: Simple, sweet name that is old-fashioned yet seems very bright.
    Eliza: Spunky but not frilly. However, its trendiness is alarming...
    Ella: See Eliza.
    Fiona: A very cute name with a lot of punch.
    Jade: Short but beautiful. Jade brings to mind a cool, minty green marbly image for me.
    Isla: A really cool name.
    Eva/Eve: Lively with nice references, these two names are really pretty.

    Good luck!
    Just a teenage writer with a fascination for names!

    Jane was my first thought!

    Jane - The queen of the 'little black dress' names. It's strictly feminine without all those frilly vowels and elaborate endings. Short and to the point.
    Eve - Simple and delicate and the time of day is one of my favorites
    Mary - Some people think this is dated, but I think it's young and fresh, especially if it's double barreled with a fun name.
    Bonnie - I think of a sweet little pioneer girl that is always looking for an adventure. It's also one of the few 'nicknamey' names that has enough substance to stand alone, imo.
    Ivy - The vibe this name gives off is amazing. For some reason, this name feels vintage to me, even though it probably isn't .
    Rose - Very sophisticated and sleek. I think it's the romantic name without the frills and fluff.
    Charlotte - Popular at the moment, but Lottie is too adorable to pass up! I think of Elizabeth and Charlotte from Pride and Prejudice.
    Elizabeth - Can't have Charlotte without her best friend, can we? Lizzy can be morphed into so many variations and nicknames, there's something cool in her for everyone.
    Lydia - Another Jane Austen name, but I love the musical syllables this name has. Very fun and flirty.
    Susannah - I imagine a curly haired girl in her Sunday dress, playing the piano. Susannah is so soft and I think the 'h' ending makes it even more old-fashioned and vintage.
    Helena - A classy name with a lot of personality in it. I think it's younger than Helen, but with the same amount of classiness.
    Daphne - I think this is super sleek and fun. She could be a sporty girl or a fashionista.
    Delphine - Sleek with a tropical feel to it.

    These names all have that country club classy feel to me but with a cool edge. I also think family surname sounding names fit the classy/cool description
    Sloan, Harper, Arden
