Old Lady Name – Beatrice

Beatrice
There's so much to love about Beatrice. It has an uplifting meaning (either "blessing" or "she who brings happiness"), a simple and adorable nickname in Bea, and a long royal and literary history, from Shakespeare to Dante's Divine Comedy.

Flora

The floral Flora remains less well used but is no less likable than many of her old lady name sisters. The name of the Roman goddess of flowers makes a fresher choice than Lily, Rose, or other flowery sisters (and the related Florence is preparing for a comeback too).

Lottie

Like Helen, Margaret is another old lady name that hasn’t quite transcended its old ladyishness. At once rich and strong, it’s got a long royal history and almost as long a list of nicknames, from the classic Meg and Margo to the stylish Mamie and Maisie. Margaret Bourke-White was one of the greatest American photographers.
