Old Hollywood encompassed the years from the late teens to the early '60s and played host to a stellar cast of brilliant, beautiful and bold actresses. If you're looking for an amazing — yet classy — name for your little girl, you might find a few gems here to add to your list.
It's interesting to note that many of these accomplished women's names are actually stage or screen names, edited for broad appeal in hopes of more roles. Judy Garland (born Frances Ethel Gumm), for example, used to perform with her sisters, but a fellow performer suggested they change their last name because "The Gumm Sisters" was too amusing to audiences. And Rita Hayworth, born in Spain and named Margarita Carmen Cansino, adopted her mother's maiden name and paired it with with a shortened version of her first name.
No matter how these names came to be, they are all entrenched within the iconic golden era of Hollywood, and any one would make an incredible baby name.
