Want a name for you baby that isn’t too out there and that no one else has? Then you may be best off using a moniker that was popular in the 1950s and 60s.
Baby Centre has put together a list of relatively normal names that were once popular but are yet to be registered on their database this year.
Sadly, it seems there’s a host of monikers that could be extinct by the end of the year.
In future generations there may be no more Carols, Clives, Traceys or Roys in the playground!
Baby names that appears to have fallen out of favour:
Meaning: Messenger of Gods.
Meaning: Bright, or glorious raven.
Meaning: From the beaver meadow.
Meaning: Manly, strong.
Meaning: Bright and clear.
Meaning: It’s a form of Clifford. From a steep cliff.
Meaning: Lordly, masterful.
Meaning: The French form of Diana. It means fertile.
Meaning: Follower of Dionysius, who was the Greek god of wine.
Meaning: Gifted ruler.
Meaning: Brown warrior.
Meaning: Serious, determined.
Meaning: God’s peace.
Meaning: God is gracious.
Meaning: Lion strength.
Meaning: Great and dark.
Meaning: Disciple of Saint Columba.
Meaning: From the new village.
Meaning: Feminine form of Alexander, which means defender of men.
Meaning: Heavenly, or of the heavens.
Meaning: This name first appeared in J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan.
Meaning: Wagon maker.
How sad that these names could disappear forever…
Hopefully, some of these monikers will be resurrected in the future. Maybe there will be a 50s and 60s baby name spike in the next couple of years? Who knows, they may even bring flare pants back too!
