name idea's anyone?

the kind of names i need are ones that were at one time very common but aren't anymore, like winifred, gail, gloria, arthur, names like that. this is for a story i am working on and those are the names i want to put in it, just as many classic names as i can.

i've posted this in several of my groups and i figure that puting it here could get me some more of them. any and al names would be apreacuated.

    Like those? They most have been popular when my mom was coming up cause I know a bunch of people with these names.
