Favorite classic/traditional names?

I’ve been a name fanatic for a long time, and it seems that the older I get, the more I gravitate towards classic and traditional names.

Lately, I’ve been fond of [name_f]Cecily[/name_f] and [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] for girls, and [name_u]James[/name_u] and [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] for boys (although I probably couldn’t use [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m]).

What are your favorite classic/traditional names?

[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] and [name_f]Cecily[/name_f], but I would probably avoid them.

I have always liked the biblical names for boys. I guess my boy name taste is far more traditional than my girl name taste. My favourite classics;
[name_m]Gabriel[/name_m], [name_m]Henry[/name_m], [name_m]Arthur[/name_m], [name_m]Eli[/name_m]
[name_f]Helena[/name_f], [name_f]Pearl[/name_f], [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f], [name_f]Mary[/name_f], [name_f]Estella[/name_f], [name_f]Esther[/name_f]

Ahhh, my favourites :smiley:
