Classic baby names are totally in style, and several have launched themselves onto the official Social Security Administration list within recent years. While names like Henry and Charlotte may be more popular overall, there are still a ton of similar names that are heard less often but would still make an excellent baby name.
Popular baby-name lists from the past are chock full of great choices for modern moms and dads. Some vintage baby names, like William and Abigail, have never really gone out of style. Other names, though, have come and gone.
That's where I come in.
These baby names don't show up in the top spots every year, and most also haven't really caught on with the recent classic baby name rage. In other words, they're the perfect choice for your baby-to-be because they're a little off the beaten track, but not so old-fashioned they really sound like your great-grandparents. And really, what better way to freshen up a baby name from decades past than bestowing it upon a newborn baby?
