    I will add to augusta_lee's list the character name trend - Arya, Grey, Kendall and so on...I only understand naming after really worthy books, films and games but not just the first thing heard.

    Alexander, Charlotte and Rebecca are all too classic to date.

    I'd say dated names:

    -Nicknamey names as given names - Evie, Gracie, Archie etc - the most popular trend in the UK
    - -son names - Mason, Madison etc
    - ley,leigh,lee names
    - Ky/Kay- names - Kylie, Kyra, Kayden etc
    - Ella/Bella names - Gabriella, Isabella etc
    - Surname names
    - Boys names on girls - at least I hope this one ends, I cringe at Rory and Elliot on girls, they will always be all boy to me.

    Anna Katherine * Lydia Ellen * Zoe Madeleine * Phoebe ___ * Imogen ___ * Emilia ___
    Samuel * Thomas * Charlie * Reuben * Oliver * George

    Classic names can absolutely date. Do you think you'd meet more people named Joan, Walter, Mary, Anne, Susan, and Harry in a kindergarten class or a retirement home? Barring demographic outliers, I'm betting on the home. I like these names and I think they'll come back, but right now, to most people, they sound dated.

    Matilda Sailor or Faye Matilda | Sylvie Wren or Simon Adler | Alice Violetta or Atlas Dov | Julian 'Jules' River or Juniper 'Joon' Lovelace | Roscoe Fox or Marlowe Fritz | Jane Lucinda or Lucien Wilde | Louisa Valor or Eloise March | Ivan Elliot or Iris Cordelia | August Jack or Jasper Hale | Dashiell Jude or Judah Reeve | Thea Marina or Marigold 'Maggie' Wynn | Finnegan Wallace or Felix Raphael

    I wholeheartedly agree with Aiden/Jayden/Kaden/Brayden/etc bunch. We should just go ahead and start calling this the "Aidenity crisis" generation.

    All of the -ley/-lee/-leigh/-lei/etc and -son/-syn/-sin/-sen names too.
    ♂ | Samuel ◊ Edward ◊ George ◊ Arthur ◊ Ezra ◊ Dean ◊ Micah ◊ Gideon ◊ Tobias ◊ Jasper
    ♀ | Helen ◊ Cora ◊ Anne ◊ Jane ◊ Edith ◊ Georgia ◊ Gwen ◊ Catherine ◊ Lydia ◊ Phoebe
