Looking for the latest and greatest baby name trends? Well, we are throwing a spanner in the works and throwing it back…black and white film back.
If you’re a lover of black and white films, think Pillow Talk, Some Like it Hot and basically anything starring Paul Newman, then you’re going to gravitate towards these old-fashioned names.
Popsugar parenting compiled this list of baby names from 1920s to the 1960s and we think they’re the new ‘Cruise’ and ‘Ziggy’.
