1940's Teenage Girl

Does anyone have any suggestions for a girl born around 1929/1930?

She’s cute and fun, a little airy on the surface, and comes from a struggling family. Not too serious of a name, not crazy silly either.

I was thinking [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] or a double barrel with it, but I’m not in love.


ETA: Any love out there for Loretta or Luella?

I like [name_f]Ellie[/name_f]! [name_f]Luella[/name_f] seems a bit out-there for her. Maybe [name_f]Loretta[/name_f] nicknamed [name_f]Lorie[/name_f]?

Or if you still double barrels, any combination of these?

I agree [name_f]Luella[/name_f] might be a little out there, but it’s a super cute name!

[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Katherine[/name_f]
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Margaret[/name_f]
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Ellen[/name_f]
[name_f]Virginia[/name_f] - “[name_f]Ginny[/name_f]” is a cute nickname!

[name_f]Libby[/name_f] is a great suggestion! Especially with fn [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]. I’ve been toying with [name_f]Lily[/name_f], but the other main female character is [name_f]Kitty[/name_f] fn [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] and I do want the names to be distinct enough.

What about [name_f]Laurel[/name_f]? I knew a lady this age and she pronounced it luh-rel.

What about…

Thanks! I’ve been toying with [name_u]Billie[/name_u] and [name_f]Sally[/name_f].
