Unpopular baby names we think deserve a second chance

Everything comes in and out of fashion and it's the same with baby names.

If you're expecting or just gave birth and are struggling to find a baby name that you love - give these a chance.

These names will guarantee that your child won't have to share its name with half the kids in their class.

1. Angela

Such a pretty name for a little girl, yet no-one seems to want it anymore.

2. Leonard

We think this one is such a classic! Oh, and you can shorten it to the very sweet 'Leo' or 'Lenny' too.

3. Miley

Poor aul' Miley.


In recent years, the once very popular (in the US at least) name has dropped more than 400 spots on the lists of names parents chose for their baby girls.

Such a pity.

4. Craig

Craig had a long stretch as one of the most popular baby names.

After staying one of the top 100 names for most of the twentieth century, this Scottish name meaning "crag or rock" has dropped like a rock recently.

5. Duncan

Now, who is going to buck the trend and go with Duncan this year?

It's ticking the unique box anyway.


6. Donna

Oh, Donna. Any fans of Beverly Hills 90210 who might feel like honouring the fabulous Donna Martin?

Maybe Donna from Mamma Mia?

7. Dean

We really like Dean! And, you can say you named him after the very stylish Dublin boutique hotel, obvs.

8. Courtney

Courtney was in the top 200 in the US for more than 30 years, peaking in 1995.


According to Nameberry, it started declining in 2003 and hasn't stopped.

9. Malcolm

Not even Malcolm in the Middle has been able to save this one.


10. Wendy

Wendy is a sweet and traditional girl's name we feel is about time swung back into fashion.

Plus, the new Peter Pan movie dropped recently so maybe it'll bounce back.

11. Judy

An absolutely adorable name that needs to make a comeback.

Someone take one for the team here.
