There are many naming “directions” a mama can follow when giving their precious new baby the perfect name. You can go with a name that’s sweet and adorable, strong and powerful, or totally unique and original.
But there’s one name category that’s gaining in popularity and that’s choosing an elegant vintage name for your baby girl. These retro baby names are still so timeless and original that they feel incredibly modern.
My advice is to always follow the peace in your heart. My first baby’s name was chosen many years before she was ever conceived and then my second baby’s name was given to me in a dream while I was pregnant! It doesn’t matter how you find your baby’s name, it only matters that you love it.
These are the list of names that were huge in times past and are now perfectly modern today!
