Vintage baby names are making a comeback! I’m not sure about you, but I have definitely noticed a resurgence of good old-fashioned nana names like Iris, Pearl and Sylvia in the playground. According to Nameberry, it is official – vintage baby names are among the most fashionable for girls as well as boys. They say,

“Choosing a vintage name can give you the best of all worlds, drawing on classic inspiration with modern style.”

For inspiration for vintage baby names we need look no further than our grandparents (Jean, William and Dolce), classic literature (Atticus, Earnest and Juliet), the bible (Ezekial, Abraham and Edna) or old movies (Frank, Audrey and Clark). If you are seeking a name with a difference and a bit of historical reference, here is a list of Vintage Baby Names to choose from.
