Ada

Ada is an old lady name that’s simple enough to appeal to the modernist, who may also be inspired by namesake Ada Lovelace, daughter of Lord Byron and the first female “computer programmer.” Do you fear that Ava is being overused? Consider the name Ada then!

Lorene

This name is a good choice for a classic name that is not too popular right now — it means “the laurel plant” and is another form of the name Laura.

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).
