- Wedding: July 2017 - State Park
My family names haven’t become popular again – Bertha, Lenore, Frank, Biagio, Ubald… I have a distant cousin Allyne which I always thought was a cool name but I’ve never seen it. And I’m named after my great grandmother.
But definitely older names are coming back. My niece is Margaret!

My grandmother’s name is Elizabeth, she goes by Betty. My grandfather was Anthony. I think both of those names are still used quite a bit. There was a Clara somewhere in there aswell, which I really like!
My dads side has some interesting/different ones – Andrij, which is the Urainan equivalent of Andrew. Wasyl, which is Russell in English. My great-grandmother was Nadiya – Not sure how popular that name is nowadays.
My other grandmother was Joyce – Sorry, couldn’t bring myself to use that as a name! Her mother’s name was Eva which I love and would like to use if we have a daughter 🙂

Kate127 : Do you think that that has anything to do with the Harry Potter books? I didn’t really think about that when posting because I haven’t seen either name surge around here since their publishing (but did see a huge surge in Harry!).

We named our baby Josephine Victoria, Josephine after my husbands late mommy and Victoria after my grandmother . I have only heard the name Josephine one other time in the past 4 yrs. and it was coming from an old lady probably in her 70s, and I very rarely hear Victoria. I love the names and their sentimental meaning Too, but I also love the fact that not many people has them. Also, whenever older people hear me call my baby they turn and complement her name. It is has if they appreciate it and take pride in it, idk. I don’t get that from younger parents tho and I am ok with it.

We are naming our daughter Virginia after my grandmother (nickname is Ginny). I don’t think the name has come back in popularity at all but the nickname has (I think due to Harry Potter maybe). My other grandparents’ names definitely haven’t come back in style, either: Herbert, Douglas, Bertille. There is an “Alice” down the line though and I do like that name!
