Female Names from Early Cinema, Part 2

The next batch of interesting female names I found in old issues of Photoplay:

Conchita

Conchita Cordova was played by actress Gladys Brockwell in the silent film A Branded Soul (1917), but the film had no influence on the usage of the name Conchita.

Photo caption: “What have I to do with love, Senor? I have come to buy the life of Juan Mendoza. I have kept my word; I trust you to keep yours.”

Gerda

Actress Gerda Holmes appeared in about 63 films (a mix of feature-lengths and shorts) from 1913 to 1918, but I don’t think she influenced the usage of the name Gerda. (It’s hard to tell, though.)

Photo caption: “Gerda Holmes came from Denmark, began the study of music in New York, and soon gravitated to the stage, where she first tasted success in Klaw and Erlanger’s “The Round Up.” She then ascended to the screen in Thanhouser’s “Robin Hood,” later appearing in several Essanay productions. She is the wife of Rapley Holmes, and is now an Equitable feature-personage. She is dark and slight.”

Ketty

Actress Ketty Galanta appeared in about 3 films in 1917 and 1918, but she had no influence on the usage of the name Ketty.

Photo caption: “Ekaterina De Galantha — sometimes called Ketty — will be recalled by picture-goers as the lustrous Russian lovess in Herbert Brenon’s “The Fall of the Romanoffs.” Otherwise, or on the stage, she is a dancer.”

Mahlee

Mahlee was played by actress Alla Nazimova in the silent film The Red Lantern (1919), but the name Mahlee has never appeared on the SSA’s list.

Story subtitle: “Telling of Mahlee, the half-caste Eurasian girl, and her futile love for one of her father’s people.”

1 Sentence, 50+ Female Names

I finished reading The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love by Oscar Hijuelos earlier this week. On the penultimate page, I spotted:

Floating on a sea of tender feelings, under a brilliant starlit night, he fell in love again: with Ana and Miriam and Verónica and Vívian and Mimi and Beatriz and Rosario and Margarita and Adriana and Graciela and Josefina and Virginia and Minerva and Marta and Alicia and Regina and Violeta and Pilar and Finas and Matilda and Jacinta and Irene and Jolanda and Carmencita and María de la Luz and Eulalia and Conchita and Esmeralda and Vívian and Adela and Irma and Amalia and Dora and Ramona and Vera and Gilda an Rita and Berta and Consuelo and Eloisa and Hilda and Juana and Perpetua and María Rosita and Delmira and Floriana and Inés and Digna and Angélica and Diana and Ascensión and Teresa and Aleida and Manuela and Celia and Emelina and Victoria and Mercedes and…

That’s 58 names. (Vívian’s in there twice, though. The total is 57 if you count Vívian only once.)

I think that’s the most names I’ve ever seen in a single sentence.
