    I love Stella. It doesn't sound old to me. I am yet to meet one and I work in a very large public school. I wish my husband would love this name..
    Two lovely kids named Milo Silas and Eleanor Elizabeth. One unnamed critter on the way.

    Maybe someone wants to check out my list http://www.babynames.com/namelist/9824264

    Stella is an old fashioned name, in an "old is new" kind of way.
    I was teaching grade 1 and my kids LOVED the Stella books, so I do think of that now, since I don't know any Stellas in real life. My grandmother's sister's name was Stella, but I didn't know her so she isn't my first thought.

    I love it! My grandmother's name was Estella, and I'm hoping to use it if I have a daughter one day.

    The only Stella I know is a toddler! I think it is a name that has already turned the corner from old fashioned to fresh and new. "Ella" names are very current. I don't think anyone would bat an eye at using Stella for a baby.

    I have an Aunt Stella in her 70's but I know far more baby Stella's, it seems to be having a revival and very fresh at the moment. Perhaps designer Stella McCartney brought it back into the limelight?
