  1. I love old fashioned names! It will probably be 5 years or so before my husband and I make the baby leap, but we've agreed that we both want old fashioned names for them!

  3. I love old fashion names. My husband did not though so we stuck with other names.

  4. I like most old fashioned baby names. We're done, so we don't have any here, but we did go the unique route.

  5. All of the girl names I plan on using are on this list. I found something that is rare enough that there won't be another one in her future class (I am not even pregnant yet-I just love baby names!!), but common enough no one will struggle mispronouncing or spelling it.

  6. Some of these names are so adorable. I gave both of my kids old fashion names. Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday:-)

  12. Nice list. I'm wondering if you have Isaac misspelled and there should be a few commas in that line as well.

  14. My name (Candace) and my son's whole name (Levi Rudolph Nathaniel) made the list! I love old fashioned names.

  15. One of my kids names made the list (Jethro) I'm yet to come across my other sons name on one of these baby name list pages (Tex) Great list though! I really like a lot of these names

  16. I love old fashioned names. I thought you may want to add one. I named my daughter Mattie which is a very old name after her great-grandmother. The name with that spelling hasn't been even remotely popular in ages. It reminds me of names like Minnie and Pearl. Now, people use "Maddie" as a more trendy version of Madelyn or Madison. I actually am not sure I would consider Madelyn an "old fashioned" name as it has been so trendy and popular recently and definitely appears on most of the top 10 baby name lists in recent years. So "Mattie" is old fashioned, "Maddie," "Madison," and "Madelyn" really aren't. :-)

  17. My baby girl's name is Sibyl. We love it, and it suits her very well. We've gotten complements from quite a few strangers who've heard it. We call her Sibbie for short. :)

  18. I have an Isaac and a Martha which I would have included on the list too. Beautiful old fashioned names 😊
