The Gentleman's Magazine Names 1840-1841

 http://silverandexact.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/the-reception-james-tissot-18851.jpg

This is the sixth instalment of The Gentleman's Magazine Names. We're three years into the Victorian Era, so we should, hopefully, see some different names popping up. 

1840
Mary Lea
Rachael Emily
Elizabeth Theophila
Merelina
Mary Eliza Alexandrina
Hannah Matilda
Whilhemina Hebe
Maria-Indiana
Rosabella Maria
Annetta Antonia Louisa
Caroline Evelina
Sophia Gertnede
Susanna Cassandra
Sybilla Lucy
Arabella Dorothea
Lavinia Lisette
Marina
Olivia Sophia
Lucinda
Marianne Edith
Maria Tryphena
Letitia Martha


1841
Jacobina Maria Sophia
Jennett-Louisa
Sophy
Anna Maria Simonette
Sarah Victoire Marie Louise
Emma-Athanasia
Hephseba Elizabeth
Isabella Fernandina Josefa
Katharina
Apphia
Barberina
Augustin
Lavinia-Lucretia
Sophia Albertina
Robina
Tryphena
Herminah
Ellena-Mary

With how popular Sophia is, would Apphia be a good alternative? And there is Herminah, just a few letters away from Hermione, which seems to be getting a lot of attention lately. It's a great option for someone who loves the name but not the Harry Potter association.
