*Note- Other female names can be flowers or even virtues such as: Hope, Patience, Prudence, Temperance, Chastity, Joy, Felicity, Fortune etc.
Although I would guess only religious, Puritan type parents would go with the virtue names.
**Another Note- The female names Abigail and Margaret were very common among servants, so keep that in mind when naming.
Brown, Anderson, Steele, Watson, Baker, Richard, Carter, Jenkinson, Lucas, Fletcher, Miller, Glover, Cooper, Cartwright, Long, Davidson, Johnson, Forster, Stone, Younge, King, Hill, Middleton, Collins, Brandon, Taylor, Martin, Dashwood, Grey, Harrison, Crawford, Parks, Clarke, Abbot, Fairfield, Williams, Smith, Hastings, Campbell, Boyd, Elliott, Fullard, Hurst, Hewitt, Pierce
Sorry for the long list. I really only put in a few of the ones that I found.
I hope they helped. Good luck!
