    Unusual Vintage Names?

    I'm looking for some more unusual names to add to my list, but I'm not 100% sure where to turn.

    I like frillier choices like Ophelia and Henrietta, but I also like strong ones, such as Hermione, and diminutives like Carrie and Bessie.

    My style is very much vintage, so vintage suggestions would be fantastic :-)

    Thanks!
    Jennifer Daisy / Jessica Bluebell / Melissa Honey / Stephanie Ava/ Michelle Elizabeth
    Heather Amelia / Tiffany Ella / Ashley Lillian / Kelly Christina / Brittany Violet
    Katrina Emily / Chrissy Margaret / Kristy Abigail / Alyssa Dorothy / April Valerie

    How about Araminta? It's an eighteenth century gem invented by a playwright (according to NB). You may also like Aminta.
