Old People Names

Old people names — or rather, #oldpeoplenames — is a Twitter phenomenon, whereby people contribute their ideas of which baby names are, you guessed it, old people names. Some of the ideas that pop up on Twitter, from Marvin to Myrtle, are good ones, while others miss the mark. True old people names still carry the whiff of mothballs, even if they're newly considered fit for babies.

Along with Marvin, other old people names that remain in the US Top 1000 include Alfred, Barbara, Donald, Eileen, Harold, Joyce, Maurice, and Patricia. Old people names coming back in style include Betty, Edna, Lois, and Murray.

Some of these names feel like they’ll never feel youthful again, but who knows? Maybe your grandchildren will be called Nelda and Norman, Velma and Vernon. Below, the names we consider Old People Names.
