Classic girls names?

Any suggestions for baby girls names that are classic but still current, English, long enough to gain a nn, but not too obscure?
The only one that really comes to mind is [name]Charlotte[/name] nn [name]Lottie[/name]…I don’t mind it but it just doesn’t grab me.
[name]Polly[/name]

There are tons. What do you consider old-ladyish?

[name]Elizabeth[/name] (might be too popular?)
[name]Katherine[/name] (too popular?)
[name]Victoria[/name]
[name]Eleanor[/name]
[name]Abigail[/name]
[name]Miranda[/name]

Sorry, forget about the old-ladyish part…I’ll just confuse everyone :slight_smile:
I guess I’m looking for something that isn’t too popular…that can gain a nn.
