Is it names that are 50 years old? Or is it less than that? some people were listing names that they couldn't imagine coming back, like Linda and Janet. I don't really dislike those. Jane is nice. Linda is pretty I think.

I think names I'd be really surprised to hear would be Suzanne and Nicola, Martin, Stephen.

I like Valerie a lot. And I know a little Paulina - like that too!

Came across a newborn named Lisa. I was surprised how surprised I was that a baby could be called such a 60s/70s name.

I always think that way out Wayne. How could name a precious newborn Wayne?

You can't call a child Wayne, simply because Wayne was always the naughtiest boy on the class.

Some old fashioned names. Rupert, Rudoplh, Olive, Una. Also, names like, Dwayne (know a baby Dwayne- called DW for short, I like his nickname!), Keith, Steve. Tracy?
