Old-fashioned baby names


Classic old-fashioned baby names are coming back into fashion, and whether you’re having a baby boy or baby girl, we have chosen our favourite old-fashioned baby names for you to consider.

We're not talking your mum or dad's generation of names, or even your grandparents generation. We're going back even further to the names that were popular around 100 years ago. Think sweet girls names like Dorothy, Florence and Edith or adorable boys names like Arthur, Walter and Luther.

These names have stood the test of time, and are the perfect option if you're worried a more popular name might go out of fashion in years to come.

After all, choosing a baby name is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make as a new parent (along with deciding which pushchair to buy), so take your time browsing through our baby name ideas and start making a shortlist of your favourites.
