With the huge Hoopla of the new British Baby being born on Monday, plus what seems to be every friend of mine giving birth to their little ones these summer months, names are on the brain. Even the hubby asked me recently what names would go great for our future children (shooting for 3 years from now).

You’d be surprised that, among the Porche’s and North West’s of today, what names that are really making a comeback are ones our Grandmothers or Great-grandmothers used. Kiri Blakeley at The Stir composed a list of the Top 30 girls names that some are actually thinking about (may want to run these by your friend who just announced “The good news”):

1. Gertrude

2. Esther

3. Lottie

4. Nannie

5. Beulah

6. Flossie

7. Gladys

8. Mildred

9. Mamie

10. Myrtle

11. Bertha

12. Dixie

13. Trixie

14. Kitty

15. Winifred

16. Edith

17. Erma (Irma)
