Does this sound old fashioned?
 
A friend of mine has two daughters Margaret and Imogen. It's cue but it sounds very early twentieth century, doesn't it?

I loved the name Imogen as a child (I think the spelling of it doesn't do the sound justice).

Margaret is definately too 'old fashioned' for my liking.. I think Imogen is with the times, but it's NMSAA

I love Margaret. I don't think it's old fashion at all. It's been sitting between 110 and 180 since 2000. So that pretty popular. I love it with the NN Etta. Don't care for Maggie that much.

I've never liked the name Imogen. I just don't like the sound. But I see it's appeal and all that.

I think they both sound pretty old fashioned.

I do think they sould old fashioned but fit with the old fashioned naming trend.

Yeah, they do sound very older fashioned to me... they're nms.

I agree, they do sound old fashioned. But then again, the names I'm considering are also "vintage". I do prefer Margaret to Imogene, though.

I think they do sound old fashioned, but that's not a bad thing to me. I love old fashioned names. Margaret is cute, but I don't think I'd use it. Imogen is pretty, but I prefer Emma.

I don't like Margret, but think Imogen (pronounced im-o-jin) is really cute!

I think Margaret ("Maggie") if fine, but Imogen is nms at all!!! My Great Aunt Margaret was CRAZY, though. Don't think I could ever use either name.

Re: Does this sound old fashioned?
 
My grandmother's middle name is Imogene (pronounced EYE-moh-jean), so it of course seems old fashioned to me. I consider Margaret "timeless" more than "old-fashioned." It's like Emma - it worked in the 1800s, and still works just fine today. I think the sibset works, though.

I think they're both lovely! I'd use either.

I like Margaret. I thin Imogen sounds sort of new agey, personally.

I think they go well together. Margaret is ok, but I don't care for Imogen

They do sound very dated, and while I like many dated names, Margaret and Imogen are not them. Maggie especially is really nms.

I actually know a little Margaret, its a family name, and they call her Maggie...

I think they're lovely names. They don't sound all that old-fashioned to me, aside from not being modern inventions. Margaret is more of a classic name to me, like Elizabeth or Mary, and Imogen is just unusual.
