Not necessarily the names that WILL become popular again, but the ones you'd like to see used! Which "old" names would you like to hear more often?

A lot of the one's ALC listed, especially Alasdair , Patrick/Padraig, Astrid, and Cecilia.

But the first name that popped into my head when seeing this thread was Margaret. I love that name. I'd use it, but it just isn't Celtic enough for me, lol.

ditto on the male Aubrey thing. There was a girl in another board I frequent who was listing her favorite names and what she wanted to name her future children. Well they were all kree8tive spellings and whatnot (Naethyn instead of Nathan... etc), but then she had Aubrey on her boy's list! I was thinking "thank goodness, she at least has SOME taste" lol. Well unfortunately, a couple of the other girls there practically convinced her not to give a boy that name ("it's a girl's name!" bla bla bla)... I kept telling her it was a great choice and that she should do it.

I'd much rather see Aubrey than Naethyn. *sigh*

Shauna, I love Arthur too, and wanted to use it... but my husband's step-mom's father (did you follow that? lol) is named Arthur, and he doesn't care much for his step-mother... and he doesn't want her thinking we named the baby after him. *sigh* So no Arthur for us.

I am sick of Aubrey on girls! When I was browsing the list of names on this site, Aubrey was listed as a girls' name (along with Aubrie and Aubree ), but it wasn't even on the boys' list.

I also wish Alexis and Meredith would go back to being male names.

I agree about Alexis... but I just can't wrap myself around Meredith for a boy. lol. It's just always seemed like a female name to me. But if I met a male Meredith, I'd probably get used to it and it would grow on me.

I'm not sure if I want them to make a true comeback since I like less popular names but I'm really partial to Estelle, Esther and Ethel. I thought Ethel might gain popularity as a similiar but alternative to Hazel. I'm shocked that Estelle/Estella/Stella aren't totally cool right now since I know about 100 little Ella's. I'm just In Love with Esther.

I would love to see more Margarets too! But it's actually not that low on the SSA list ... I was surprised to see that. I would guess those Margarets are mostly middle-name-Margarets, though.

I love traditional names much more than the trendy trying to be different names..

old fashioned girls names I like are Mabel and Edie.. theyre so cute

old fashioned boys names I like are Alistair and Edwin.. I am having a boy and my faves at the mo are Alistair and Fraser, nobody else seems too keen on either.

In the Uk at the moment it is REALLY trendy to use old fashioned traditional names:

Some of the most popular are:
RUBY (the most popular)
Eve
pearl
Mabel
Irene (Reenie)
Daisy
Margaret
Esme
Grace
Olivia

I don´t know many baby boys
William
Edward
Chrles/Charlie
Joshua
Jacob
Harry

Names spelt creatively are out of fashion, and trendy names like Jordan and Jackson are out too.

I love the name Aubrey. I never knew it was actually a male name until about a week ago. My dad said he grew up with an Aubrey. People today seem to name boys girls name (Shannon, Courtney, Leslie, Kelly, etc) and girls boys names (Tyler, Taylor, Joey, Cameron, etc). Its a trend all in its own. However, most of these names are listed under both sexes in pretty much every baby name book. With that said, I think Aubrey for a girl is appropriate.

Shannon, Courtney, Leslie, and Kelly were all originally male names.
