I personally really like Matilda (no h, thanks). And Miranda.

What’s really interesting is how certain “old” names make it back to popularity and others don’t. Take Emma, for instance, a name hugely popular in the late 1890s and then all but died out around WWII. About ten years ago it saw a resurgence and is now the 2nd most popular girls name. But Florence, even more widely used at the turn of the 20th century than Emma, is practically extinct with no sign of resusitation.

I don’t like any of those names you mentioned. To each his own.

There's a great Florence song, but I can't think of any Emma songs.
