Traditional Baby Names

Traditional baby names, by our definition, are those that have been used consistently in English-speaking countries for centuries -- and are still in widespread use.

While traditional names are often popular, that's not always true. Traditional girl names among the current Top 10 in the US include Emma, Olivia, and Charlotte. For boys, the traditional names at the top of the popularity list include William, James, and Benjamin.

Traditional baby names might not be the most exciting choices in the book, but they are the most reliable. Here are some of the top traditional baby names for both boys and girls.
