Amongst people I know with little ones, there's quite a few with names that I recognize as common in my 80-year-old relatives.

Three biggies: Sophie, Lily, Grace

Any other resurgence of "old" names that you've heard of?

Well I like the names June, May and Iris, all older names. I also like Faye too. And we are naming our son Emmett which was a popular name in the 40's!

My grandmothers names were Theresa and Louise. I've mentioned that on here before and ppl mentioned Theresa making a comeback but I haven't heard Louise in recent years.

I've heard lots of Stella's...which is kind of pretty, but it sounds like the name of a mean grandmother...

My name is Cassandra. I was named after a woman from a proninent family from around my area. She lived in the early 1800's. I never knew any other Cassandras when I was younger, but now when I look at the birth announcements in our newspaper I see lots of them. Also my middle name is Rose. Also old fashioned, and making a comeback. We are considering Lydia and Norra for girl names. They are old fashioned. I guess I like them.

LOL Read my signature, I've been hearing STELLLLLLAAAAA alot!!

Leah is an old name too, it's just always remained popular.

I really like old names, some others I was considering were Clara, Cora and Bella.
