    My mother thinks Kayla/Kaila/Keila is "Old Country" and too 19th C. I had a dear great-great-aunt who loved beauty and fashion who mourned how old-fashioned and unpopular her name was - it was Bella. I'm still sad Aunt Bella never saw her name resurge.

    Most people I know find these terrible but I suspect Nameberry could forgive me: Jane, Ivy, Raquel, Hazel, Penelope, Elspeth, Rosemary, Judith, Beatrice, Ramona, Rowena, Lillian, Dinah. Evangeline I wouldn't really use but is in this category.

    Nameberry considers these outdated (the people I know IRL would be okay with them): Megan, Caitlin, Amy, Jen/Gen, Tegan, Sabrina. Christine I wouldn't really use but is in this category.

    Then there are the old names I like that NO ONE likes: Enid, Rosamund, Eartha, Iola, Kezia, Tamar.

    I like a lot of vintage-esque names that my boyfriend considered dated such as Estelle, Ruby, Vivienne, Audrey, Genevieve, Margo/Margaret, Edith, and Helene. And he likes some 70's/80's/90's names I consider dated like Valerie, Rebecca, Alyssa, and Rachel(I have two cousins and a great aunt named Rachel.)

    That said I have dated 80s/90s names I call my guilty pleasures. I love Breanna but only with an "e", when spelled with an "i" it feels like it should be pronounced like Brian, to me. Chelsea, Dylan(for a girl), Morgan, Hallie, Lauren, and Autumn.
    Girls- Winter, Eden, Colette, River, Charlotte.
    Boys- Atticus, Eliot, Milo, Gideon, Malcolm.

    Omg Stripedsocks I love Rosamund, Enid and Eartha! Eartha was on my list for a while until people convinced me she was drab and heavy like Bertha. And Eartha Kitt would be a strange namesake. Enid is still on the short list. I think Rosamund may start becoming popular. That powerful "mund" is the perfect foil for Rose!
