Thread: Will Violet seem dated soon?

Also (very) worried about this! I'm agonizing over this name everyday. I just love it but don't want to use a dated name, since I have an "80's" name and despise it. I am favouring Violet just ahead of Daphne. Today I had reconciled that Violet was going to be it, then I see this thread and totally second guess it again...

I don't think it will seem dated. I just think that it will be extremely common and popular. It might lose it's "spark".♥ nineteen & renaming myself soon ♥

I think it's common on this board and less so in the general public. I also can't imagine it as trendy as others have posted.*Magnolia Alice ( Noli) / Evangeline Violet (Eh-vee)/ Adelaide Clover (Laidy)/ Athena Florence (Attie)/

I'm not saying Violet will be dated, however I do think the only way to guarantee a name doesn't become dated is to pick one that is totally unique or totally bland. Things become dated because lots of people are into them at the same time. So the more popular Violet becomes, the more it is associated with a particular time period.
Take fashion --something totally unique to you is never dated (like a special broach or scarf, or Anna Wintour's bob haircut) because it's a symbol of your style. Something like a black suitjacket is never dated because everyone always has one in their closet.
Something totally unique like Oleander (or whatever) won't be tied to a time period. Nor Sarah (or whatever) because it appears in every time period.Latest list:
