Out with the new, in with the old?

We don’t know about you, but we are starting to feel like baby names have gone a bit awol of late? I mean; there is unusual and then there is just plain bonkers, no?

In the meantime, we reckon there are some great old-school names out there that all deserve a second chance. We are talking names your granny would be familiar with, names that just ooze warm and cosy, but also, you know, means business.

If this sounds all sorts of cool to you, here are 10 granny-inspired baby names we are all a little bit obsessed with right now:

1. Esther

2. Nancy

3. Margaret

4. Maura

5. Agnes

6. Margot

7. Judy

8. Alma

9. Cordelia

10. Eugenia
