    Dated favorites?

    Are there any dated names you like that everyone thinks of as just mom and dad names? I'm thinking about names popular in the 60's, 70's and 80's mostly. I think the 50's names are starting to get a vintage charm to them (thanks Mad Men!) so I'm not including those.

    My list of dated favorites:
    Girl:
    Amanda, Erica/Erika, Christina, Beth, Bethany, Lindsay, Felicia, Megan, Jeannine, Lauren, Heidi, Tracy, Jennifer, Annette, Kirsten, Carla, Wendy, Holly.

    Boy:
    Gregory, Courtney, Geoffrey, Eric/Erik, Mark, Keith

    My boys list is much shorter. I think because the girls style isn't really all that different, other than being overly familiar, while the boys names of this area don't appeal to me as much sound wise.

    I LOVE Dad names. To me, Dad names were the names from the 60's and 70's, not so much the 80's.

    I think I was born in the perfect naming period for myself, because I cannot stand dated names. All the 70's/'80s/90s names are absolutely NOT my style.

    While I didn't find these three decades the most interesting for baby names, there are a few I can tolerate. Some of the names overlap between the decades so I'll only post each one once. I'm not going to include classic names like Elizabeth, James or John because they're not "dated" to me.

    I love Bethany, Wendy, Holly, and Heidi.

    I also like: Laura, Dawn, Sandy, Robin, Jill, Cindy, Diana, Julia, Beverly, Gretchen

    I can't say there's many guys names I like that are dated. I like classics and I like modern but Keith and Gary and the like aren't my cup of tea.
