    Red face Oldies That Make You Smile

    Hey there Berries,

    I've got an awful cold today, so I have decided to turn to the naming community to lift my sniffy spirits.

    At the moment, I am swooning over the old fashioned. All those clunky, sweet & down right lovely gems hidden away. Some of these you might say "ooh" to, and some of these you might say "ew" to, but right now, I am loving...

    Annette
    Nell
    Muriel
    Margot
    Meg
    Flora
    Brigitte
    Bette/Betty
    Suzy

    And I usually would include ones that lots of people enjoy, (think Eleanor, Olive, Freya) but I'm looking for the ones that make you smile, and think "how pretty/lovely/cute/interesting", instead of the ones you hear about lots on Nameberry.

    Can you add to my list?
    Jude, blackbird.

    Nell is my favourite. It is so classic, strong and beautiful! A real hidden gem...
