Baby names are like fashion, there’s a natural cycle of replacing the old with the new and the new with the old.

Next on the block is 90s baby names.

BabyCentre has listed their 90s baby name predictions for boys and girls stating “while these names may sound over-familiar and even old-fashioned to us 80s and 90s kids, they’ll be a breath of fresh air among all the Ivy’s and Noah’s at nursery and playgroup.”

If you were a Friends nut in the 90s, you’re in luck with the likes of Courtney and Jennifer (who of course played Monica and Rachel on the hit TV show), making the girls list and Ross making the boys list.
