A true classic: 13 olden day names we think are totally perfect for modern-day babies

Modern schmodern.

Sometimes you got to look back in time if you want to find the most perfect baby name – you know; the one where your child won't have to share his or her name with half the class once they are old enough to start school.

Are you ready? These blast-from-the-past baby names are without a doubt fit for little kings, queens, saints and heroines:

1. Gwendolyn

You'd call her Gwen for short, obvs!

2. Alistair

We think the Scottish version of “Alexander” sounds much ore dashing, no?

3. Isolde

I mean, just; wow.

4. Lancelot

Born to be a heartbreaker, for sure.

5. Millicent

Just tell us that "Milly" isn't the cutest little nickname ever invented!

6. Tristan

The hero of a great love affair.

7. Margery

So pretty!

8. Odin

A Norse God, and, we think, one cool moniker for your little guy.

9. Eleanor

Fit for a (medieval) queen.

10. Tyrell

Love it!

11. Guinevere

She was King Arthur's wife.

12. Lawrence

From the Latin word for “laurel,” meaning victorious.

13. Emeline

Such a fabulous alternative to the much more common "Emma"!
