Long Vintage Names for Girls

I have a soft-spot for old lady names. What I love about the past few years in baby naming trends is the revival of names that appear more suited to a crooked backed, curlers in her hair, bingo dabbing elderly woman, than to a petite newborn baby. While some of my favourite vintage names are short (Alice, Cora, Daphne, & Ivy), here is a list of the lengthier vintage names, many of which are rising in popularity (like Adelaide and Penelope):
