And when we took a look at the birth clubs in our forum from May 2017 to June 2017 – we saw one baby name theme that just kept coming through.
Yep, the big one was…. vintage! Some of those lovely, classic, old-school names really are coming back into fashion.
That said, we think this ‘trend’ has actually gone past being a trend now – we’ve seen plenty of these classic names making the top spot on these lists for a few years now.
Here’s what our mums were choosing:
Girls vintage names
Boys vintage names
While there were a few names that broke the ‘classic’ mould (we also spotted X-men-inspired names, like Logan and Phoenix), we have to say the vintage names have been HUGE for our mums over the last year.
And speaking to our team – a fair few have said they went for a family name belonging to a grandma or grandad, or at least knew people who did.
What do you think?
Did you go for a vintage name for your baby? Do you like the idea of naming your little one after a family member / having a name that’s past down the generations? Tell us in the comments below or over on Facebook
