Middle class baby names

Please can you spam me with some weird and interesting middle / upper class baby girl names (just because they are usually a little bit more unique). I'm getting pretty snow blind in all of the basic name recommendations people are giving me.
Please no old lady names or flowers 😬

Not sure if they fit your criteria, but I suggest:

Verity
Felicity
Juliet
Erica
Penelope
Cressida

They often arent unique. Often classic. Elizabeth, Charlotte, Sophie, Lucy etc.

Ok so you clearly have in mind a stereotype of middle class baby names. I work with a lady who was raised on one of the biggest council estates in the UK - her name is Charlotte.

Im friends with someone who was educated in the independant sector and whos hobby is horse riding - her name is Kendal.

Does that fit your stereotype?

You seem very fixated on class stereotypes hmm
It’s utterly bizarre to me - you seem like a hideous snob op wine

Tbh, I think a lot of those names are either fairly universal now or out of fashion. Maybe these?

Wilhelmina
Alexandra
Dorothea
Camilla
Beatrice
Margaret
Eleanor
Caroline
Augusta
Diana
Frances
Helen
Jane
