I'm a baby naming guru & these are the 39 baby names from 1880s due to make a comeback | The Sun

IT'S hard to keep up with the changing trends in baby names, as something that was the peak of popularity 20 years ago could now be very dated.

But there's no need for you to follow the trends when there are others who can keep on top of them for you.

A self-confessed "name nerd" produced a list of 39 baby names, all from the 1880s and all looking likely to make a comeback.

Back at the end of the 1800s these names were firmly in the top 200 most popyular but since dropped right out the charts.

But after a long break, the name aficionado explained that the monikers are making a comeback.

Baby name whizz, Confidentialo, took to Reddit's namenerds forum with the list that they had designed: "based on name trends we’ve been seeing."
