After I don't know how many posts, we're finally back to talking about girlies. Here are the names of real ladies and misses married between 1831-1835.

1831
Paulina Helena
Cicely
Harriet Eleanor
Liliah
Celina
Caroline Jesscinthia
Henriana Matilda

1832
Rosamund Hester Elizabeth
Emma Donna
Agnes Phoebe
Janette Elizabeth
Adelaide Maude
Emma Augusta
Julia Cecilia
Caroline Alicia Diana
Sarah Georgiana
Harriet Louisa
Elinor Katherine

1833
Justine Henrietta
Arabella Margaretta
Ursula
Emily Rosetta
Belinda Jane
Annis Elizabeth
Christian
Sibella
Jemima-Caroline
Clara Susan
Laura Maria
Jocelyn
Juliana Isabella Mary
Blanche
Dorinda

1834
Sophia Lilias
Diana Hariet
Margaret Lauretta
Maria Mary
Honor

1835
Gwedaline
Charlotte Claudine Clementine
Evereld Catherine
Mary Uzella
Favel Georgina
Mary Philadelphia
Thalia Eliza
Sarah Philis
Susan Rose
Jeannette
Phillida Elizabeth
Albinia Eliza
Phillippina
Harriet Alethea

They all seem fairly standard, but there are some surprises there. Phillippina and Gwedaline are close to names we hear often, Phillippa and Gwendoline, but with a twist. Jeannette appears to me to be a hybrid of Jean and Annette. I love the Maria Mary, but it makes me wish they would've snuck in a Marie as well.
