The new US Top 1000 list is out, and there’s good news for those who love classic baby names! While plenty of newer names caught on, 2014 was all about the return of longtime favorites.
The farther you look down the list, the more vintage gems you’ll find. Some of the names have returned to the rankings after decades of hibernation. Others have never really gone away, but the numbers suggest that these classics might feel stylish and fresh once more.
Here are eighteen great names – nine for girls and nine for boys – that climbed 50 spots or more between 2013 and 2014.
Before we get to her new daughter’s colorful moniker, let’s pause and consider the other issue Madison raised: to share or not to share your baby’s name in advance?
Madison split the difference.
She hinted throughout her pregnancy that she was going to choose something different, even comparing it to that much-maligned celeb kid choice, Apple.
I’d been pouring over her Twitter feed looking for clues to her baby’s name, and completely missed that one.
So the choices for expectant parents in 2013 are: tell the world your name before the arrival, keep mum until you’ve already made it official, or use social media to drop broad hints to all of your faithful followers.
