Old-fashioned names ...

I really love old fashioned names ... but not the ones that are kind of silly ( like agnus or harold) ... i am not sure of our baby's gender yet, but would like some male and female names..

So far the only ones I though of that I like are Benjamin and William ( but I hate the nicknames Willy and Billy) ... I also love Madaline and Margaret ( maggie ) ...

Any other ideas ?

  • I really like 'old fashion names' Including Harold and Agnes! My DS name is Carl and I LOVE it for him. We considered Madolia 'Dolie' for DD and Louis had she been a boy. I also like Thaddeus and Eloise and Hector and Vada...

  • My daughter's name is Tess.

    We were looking for something simple, classic, and not on any of the top 1,000 baby names.
