    It depends on the time period you are looking at but Ruth, Rebecca, Sarah, Elizabeth, Susannah, Louisa, Henrietta, Olive, Georgia, Anne, and Jane are all old fashioned names that span many generations. For boys, it would be Thomas, George, Victor, Henry, John, James, Howard, Charles, Louis, and William.

    Depending on how old fashioned you need, go to your local cemetery and check out names for that era.
