Don't over-think this one, please:

If you saw a list of women's names from the 18th century......would the name, "Morgan" stike you as a name from that era? I'm looking for some 6-letter names (18th century U.S.) for women.

Morgan - no, that is a masculine name from that era I believe. Penney, Lizzie, Rachel

If you're looking for the gut feeling on Morgon....my gut says no. At first my gut said yes but the I realized I was thinking of the name Morgana. But that's just me I could be totally wrong.

My gut feeling does like
Phoebe and Louisa.

Maybe flipping through character lists of Shakespeare plays might help. It's older than 18th Cent. but could still work.

Or maybe you could look up "Restoration Comedies" and look for some names there.
