    Great suggestions!

    Felicitas is my favorite .

    Henrietta and Lavinia are on my list; Calliope, Esperanza, Euphemia, Magdalena, Sophronia and Wilhelmina were all contenders.

    {My list: http://nameberry.com/nametalk/threads/140727-DREAM-GIRLS-Crusty-Clunky-Eccentric-Unwieldy}

    Any non-Nameberry links I should investigate?

    Most names I can think of are on Nameberry, but they're so unusual/unconventional, you mightn't have heard them before :-)

    Eglantine
    Zipporah
    Ambrosia
    Herminia
    Alexandrine

    Also, I found that Elea off of British Baby Names has some wonderful ones that aren't listed on NB in her finds from the 1800's!
