Names People Think Are Old Fashioned



Just as lapels widen and shrink and hemlines rise and fall names go

in and out of fashion. Names that once sounded new, exciting, and fresh

eventually become overused, go out of popularity, or otherwise lose

their appeal, and people view them as old fashioned.


Some consider old fashioned names as ones that are at least one century prior, such as

Sylvia or Fredrick. Others may consider vintage names that were once

popular 40 years ago like Elvis or Ruby. Other’s may consider

old-fashioned names from the Bible such as Luke or Mathew.

Something that is old fashioned is said to be out of style or from the

past, people think these names are outdated because they

are either not currently popular, or they're just plain old.


However, just because some people view these names as old fashioned doesn't imply that they are not pretty. It could be as a result of the way they are pronounced (although most people have heard of these

names), so pronunciation isn’t too big a problem.


These old fashioned names are also unique enough to be uncommon names in the register.

They forever live on because they are closely associated with past generations.


Perhaps parents and caregivers are looking for a unique and rare name but still want that traditional feel to their kid's name. These names have stood the test of time, therefore, whether you are a fan of old literature or not, always know that great leaders, kings, and queens of long ago once bore these names.


Our list will give you ideas for naming your newborn baby while

celebrating the days past.
