We have plenty of time but I am really struggling with liking any girls names...blush
I like traditional boys names circa early 20th century, but I'm not sure what I like for girls! Help please, wise people of mumsnet!

What sort of names do you like? Do you want quite a classic /trendy/old lady/virtue name?
Are there any names you dislike?
Any that you might think are ok?
