Need help with character names...?
I'm writing a story set in the late 1800s early 1900s. There is a young girl getting married to a man. This marriage is arranged by the way. On her wedding night, the man doesn't show up. That night she also ends up getting murdered. Blah, blah, blah... Im not exactly sure how the whole story is going to go. Anyway, I need a name for the young bride, the man, and afew names for other characters for when I need them. The problem I have with choosing names is that I names that sound from the time of the story.
So, if you can, give me a name for the bride, man, and about two more male and female names. Feel free to suggest sceans for the story as well.
Thank you for your help:)

Ignore Katie, she's a jerk!
Maybe Julianna or Rebecca, or even Elizabeth or Maria for something traditional.
Man names could be like Nicolas, William, or Robert.
