Of these stately, mostly greek origin, old fashioned names...

Penelope
Iphigenia
Eugenia
Wilhelmina

It would be with a short mn like May or Ann and a common 2 syllable last name, like Johnson.

Thanks ladies. Unfortunately I think it now looks like Penelope is too trendy (I think there is even a Kardashian baby named Penelope ) but nice to see Wilhemina and Eugenia get a little support.

That is a similar one! However, it sounds bad with the real last name in this case (which is not Johnson) because of the "dra" ending. Great one for a more general list though.

Wilhelmina is a favorite of mine though for me I'm not sure it's really a usable name.

long before we found out we were having a boy, we had chosen the name wilhelmina. we were going to call her billie. we didn't even consider willem or wilhelm for our lo, because if we have a second child and it's a girl, we'd be kicking ourselves! still our fav girl's name!

I like Penelope alot, I'm big into nick names for children, so I think being able to call her Penny would be cute!

My aunt's name is Eugina and she HATES it
