70 Girls' Names that are Pure Victorian England: Evangeline Many of the names are long and multisyllabic, including lacy creations like Arabella and Euphemia, quirkier gentleladies like Winifred and Adelaide, and biblical rarities like Tryphena and Hephzibah. The restraint of virtue names like Honor and Prudence is balanced by the lushness of Violetta and Evangeline.

Favourite colour (so far!) for lounge walls. Card Room Green by Farrow & Ball. This colour is named after the study-like rooms much favoured in the Victorian period and is unapologetic in its masculine feel. It really comes alive when contrasted with a warm neutral like Fawn or Stony Ground, as used in Victorian homes, but feels more powerful and contemporary when used with no contrasts at all. Dark Tones Undercoat.

In fact, stick "Lady" or "Lord" in front of any of them and see how they just roll off the tongue. http://www.britishbabynames.com/blog/2011/11/upright-elegance.html
