What are some male and female Victorian era names?

I am writing a story and most of it takes place in Victorian London. I need some names for a lady of noble birth, and a lady of common birth. Same with the male names. Anyone got any good ones?

    The majority of English names you see today are the very same as yester-era.

    In the "Victorian" era, especially, newborns were commonly named after the monarch. In this period of time, you saw many Alberts(Queen Victoria's husband), and Victorias. Henry was also a common name, as was Edward and George. To make this rambling of mine easier, I'll make a list:

    Females:

    Adda(Addison)

    Aindrea(feminine version of Andrew)

    Alberteen

    Alexandrea

    Annabella <--- Names including "bell" or "bella" were quite common for women.

    Annabeth

    Aveline

    Males:

    Ackley <--- Names with roots in Germany and Ireland were also common.

    Adamson

    Adam

    Adrion

    Aikin

    Akker

    As you can tell, I'm running through a list. It's my favorite name database. You may want to take a look. It has just about every name from every nation.

    Good luck!
