These name choices are entirely my opinion, and you might not agree with them. But after reading through the Below The Top 1000 list from the SSA, I picked out the best names I could find that were spelled properly or at least very close to the original. What do you think? Do you agree with my choices or do you have your own favorites from the bottom of the list?

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.
It’s time to nominate brand new baby names to add to the Nameberry database!
