    Is There Such a Name?

    I’m in a bit of a naming slump right now. All of my regular favorites seem to have one problem or another. Lucy suddenly doesn’t seem special enough, Cornelia is perhaps “too much” for a real child, Willow is too trendy, Glow is too out-there. I just don’t know! I seem to be leaning towards vintage names lately, like Olive or Harriet, but would naming my child an old-fashioned name in 2019 be like naming them Ashley or Jennifer in the 80’s? Just part of the trend?

    I feel so lost. Does anyone have any name suggestions for me? My favorites include the ones above, as well as names like Beatrix, Antonia, Winifred, Fae, Rosalind, Queniva, Bravery, Fox, and Clover.

    I really don't think old-fashioned names in 2019 are just "part of the trend". It's how names have always worked. A name comes and goes out of fashion, so naturally old fashioned names are all going to be fashionable again after some time.
    There are plenty of names that are timeless, not too weird but not too common! I think we have somewhat similar styles so I'll just copy-paste some of my favorites from my list.
