You can think of old-fashioned names 4ever. But personally I LOVE these:
Augusta**
Jane
Clara**
Lorena
Sarah
Beatrice
Cheyenne (My name, but I decided it was pretty old-fashioned myself. Whatever you think)
Faith**
Hope**
Grace
Charity (names like this were common in the early 1800s. Remember** & Patience were also popular)
For men
John
Joseph (variation-Yosef/Josef)
Marcus** (Greek/Romanian
Augustus (Greek. Great-nephew of Julius Ceasar)
Charles
Adam
Benjamen
Ray (Raymond/Rhame)
Eugene
Samuel
James
Edward (very popular, although the twilight books)
Ethan (may or may not have been popular. I just like it and it sounds very very old-fashioned but yet modern. A good combo if you ask me.)
I love these & wouldn't mind seeing them in a book. Although I do not know your intentions, so who am I to say anything about your intentions!
Happy name searching & hope I helped.

Nathaniel, Jonah, Jared, Kenan, Cain, Seth, Moab, Ruben, are some of the lesser known names that are from the Bible for boys/men. Girls names that come from the Bible but are not well known include: Ada, Sheba, Bela, Sarai, Leah, Anah. Over the years some of the spellings have changed such as adding another "L" to Bela and dropping the "H" in Ahah and adding a "N" - Anna. There are others, of course, and some are very common in today's world: Adam, Joseph, Benjamin etc. Pick up your Bible and leaf through and you will see many names that are very distinct and rare.
