Looking to add to girls list...vintage chic names wanted

[name]Hi[/name] everyone! I’m new to this site and loving it so far! It’s good to hear others appreciate the same types of names that I do. Anyway, the fiance and I plan to start TTC at the end of this year and being the name nerd that I am, I have been bringing up the topic quite often. [name]Just[/name] looking to get some opinions/additions to my girls list, so here it is. My fiance doesn’t like the long, sophisticated sounding names, and I like old fashioned classics. So our compromise appears to lean toward antique nickname names. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Some new ones that I have recently seen on here that I love are [name]Sadie[/name] and [name]Lottie[/name].


What about [name]Millie[/name], [name]Lola[/name], [name]Cora[/name], [name]Delia[/name]?

From your list I love [name]Sadie[/name] & [name]Tessa[/name]. My friends name is [name]Tessa[/name] :slight_smile:
I would also suggest [name]Lulu[/name], [name]Vivi[/name], [name]Pippa[/name], [name]Poppy[/name], [name]Rosie[/name], [name]Gigi[/name], [name]Tillie[/name]

[name]Welcome[/name] to Nameberry! I love ALL of them on your list. You may also like:

Good luck!

I [name]LOVE[/name] the name [name]Lois[/name] but it was vetoed by DH! I also love Annie. That was actually the alternate name for my first daughter. It was between Camille and Annie and we waited until she was born to see which “fit” her better.

[name]Sadie[/name], [name]Tessa[/name], [name]Annie[/name], [name]Molly[/name], [name]Ada[/name] and [name]Lottie[/name] are just geourgous.

[name]How[/name] about… [name]Lucy[/name], [name]Addie[/name], [name]Gwen[/name], [name]Edie[/name], [name]Willa[/name] and [name]Dora[/name]. I hesistate to add [name]Dora[/name] because it’s quite tied to the cartoon character but I still think it’s a great name and seems to fit in with your taste.

I would like to second the other posters suggestions of [name]Stella[/name], [name]Nellie[/name], [name]Mille[/name] and [name]Pippa[/name]

I adore [name]Sybil[/name]/[name]Sibyl[/name]. Also, [name]Lois[/name], [name]Nell[/name], [name]Edith[/name] or [name]Edie[/name], [name]Helen[/name], [name]Helena[/name], [name]Irene[/name]

The only one I am not crazy about is [name]Mira[/name]. It just somehow sounds incomplete. If I had to pick a favourite I would say [name]Molly[/name].

I like your list. I think [name]Hattie[/name], Haddie, [name]Maisie[/name], [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Olive[/name], [name]Pearl[/name], and [name]Rubie[/name] could be some possible additions to your list.

If not [name]Lois[/name], how about [name]Louisa[/name]?


So many awesome suggestions! Thanks! I love [name]Maisie[/name], [name]Sylvie[/name], [name]Edie[/name]/[name]Eden[/name], [name]Willa[/name], and [name]Stella[/name]. Fiance’s favs right now are [name]Lottie[/name], [name]Sadie[/name], and [name]Maisie[/name]. Keep them coming! :slight_smile:

From your list I love [name]Tessa[/name] and [name]Sadie[/name]! Some other chic/vintage could be


[name]Love[/name] [name]Ada[/name]!

[name]Celia[/name] is another favorite I would suggest; here are the rest:


Almost all the names I like could be called vintage so it was more a matter of keeping to the shorter, less complicated/weird ones.
Some of my fonder picks, with some repeats from PPs:

Nothing over 2 syllables on this list!

[name]Iris[/name], [name]Ivy[/name], [name]Ida[/name]
[name]Lena[/name], [name]Leora[/name]
[name]Tansy[/name], [name]Twila[/name]
[name]Tillie[/name]/[name]Tilly[/name] (I have no opinion on the spellings here and usually with most names I have a favourite spelling)
[name]Dinah[/name], [name]Dahlia[/name], [name]Delia[/name]
[name]Flora[/name], [name]Zora[/name]
[name]Ada[/name], [name]Alice[/name]
[name]Elspeth[/name] (more letters than [name]Eliza[/name], but fewer syllables… shorter or longer, not sure…?)
Esmé, [name]Enid[/name]
[name]Marie[/name], [name]Mara[/name]
[name]Mae[/name]/[name]May[/name] - Some preference for [name]Mae[/name] but both are cute.
[name]Rose[/name] (FN only, bland and dull as middle)
[name]Eartha[/name] (I am the only person who likes [name]Eartha[/name] though)

I second [name]Sylvie[/name] and [name]Maisie[/name] as my favorites from your list thus far!

more ideas in this theme…

anything appeal?

Thanks so much!! I like [name]Nora[/name] and [name]Iris[/name]. I am also finding [name]Lotte[/name] intriguing…how is that pronounced? Is is said like [name]Lottie[/name] or Lot?

I love the name [name]Hattie[/name] myself :slight_smile: Or [name]Phoebe[/name], [name]Gwen[/name], [name]Ari[/name]/ [name]Ara[/name] ([name]Aria[/name], [name]Arietta[/name], [name]Arabelle[/name]), [name]Winnie[/name] ([name]Winona[/name]), [name]Thea[/name] ([name]Theodora[/name]), [name]Etta[/name]?

I love the vintage style!
