Names like Blythe?

What names feel similar (not necessarily sound similar) to [name_f]Blythe[/name_f]?
Primarily looking for girl names but still open to adding new boy names to the boys list.

To me, [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] hits a sweet spot of being somewhat unexpected and underused, a bit quirky, yet still classic and elegant.
With the resurgence of “grandma girl names”, so many I used to love have skyrocketed in popularity.
It doesn’t need to be made up or too YoUnIqUe, but I appreciate timeless names that still catch you off guard a bit (in a good way) because you weren’t expecting it.
[name_m]Alas[/name_m], [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] rhymes with our son’s name so we probably won’t be able to use it.

I also wonder if [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] could still work in the middle, or with the nickname [name_f]Bea[/name_f]? But that may be too popular for your tastes

After reading a few other comments, it seems like Blythe gives off different vibes to everyone :see_no_evil::joy: one of those names! A great one though!

Blythe is definitely a vintage name, but since it never reached huge popularity, it’s not super tied to being a grandma name for me. There’s a little bit of that, but something about it feels very modern and chic to me, so I’m gonna suggest names that give that feeling to me (I tend to equate these names to the 1920s, even if they weren’t used much or at all back then. Very art deco-esque to me. Some of them definitely are more grandma name-y. One of my favourite vibes!)
