    Old fashioned? Joy, Ada, Brenda...

    I really like the names Joy, Brenda, June, Ada, Nancy and Ruth. But I've been told that they are old fashioned, do you think these names are ready for a come back any way soon? Or is it likely they will remain old fashioned?

    Any variants of the names would be appreciated, thank you

    I think June, Ada, and Ruth are perfectly fine. Joy isn't my style, but it could make a nice middle name. I know some young Nancy's, but they're in their early twenties as opposed to small children, if that makes a difference. I think Brenda's still a bit dated.

    I love Joy, June, Ada & Ruth. Yes, going by the 100 year rule I think they're due for a come back. If you love them, I would use them regardless.
