6 beautiful 'lost' baby names which are making a major comeback

Still searching for the perfect name for your little one?

We get it: it can be tough. 

After all, there's a lot to consider. You want it to be unique, but not so much so that they end up spelling it out for the rest of their lives.

But then again, you also don't want it to be so popular that they end up sharing a name with half the class when they get to school age.

Plus, you want it to match with your surname - and it has to be one both you and your partner agree on.

But that doesn't mean you have to go with anything too complicated.

In fact, more and more parents are looking toward the past for inspiration when it comes to finding the perfect name for their little one.

The folks at Nameberry have put together a list of absolutely gorgeous 'lost' baby names.

They looked at the statistics for last year to find the names which have made an appearance on the baby name charts for the first time in years, decades, and even a century.


Last recorded in 1998. 5 girls given the name in 2018.

Other, similar-style names, returning to the list include Euphoria, Cinder, Crescent and Spiritual.


Last recorded in 1996 for girls; 2000 for boys. 8 girls given the name in 2018.
