    Uncommon, Substantial Girl Names

    We are set on a boy name but are still undecided for a girl. I prefer names that have a longer history of use and have never been really popular. Most of the names we're considering have been given to fewer than 50-75 girls in recent years. My daughter's given name is inspired by a civil rights activist so I would like some link to a person my future daughter could be proud to share a name with as well.

    Thank you!
