I don't mean this thread to be morbid, but I thought this was interesting.
Today I just happened to check the obituaries for information about a neighbor, and I noticed the people were all over 80 (some as old as 99) and the names seemed to be coming back in style.... Is it like that where you live?

Sophia, Isabelle, Emma, and Audrey are definitely modern winners. I think Eleanor is coming back, but I haven't seen it in usage. It should come back though. It's gorgeous!
Most of the boys are traditional, perennially used. I think Louis is catching on, what with One Direction and the new prince. (and people will actually pronounce it loo-ee) The only boys I see as not back yet are Edmond and Abraham. Hopefully Edmond (or Edmund) will come back soon, though, as I think it's a nice strong name for a boy.Proud author of Kissimmee, Orlando, Mary, Adam, Mississippi, Micah, Georgette, Evelyn, Diane, Millicent, Maybeline, Prudence and so many many more
