Vintage Baby Names

It was an era of flappers, gangsters, speakeasies and Model T automobiles; and the names were just as spirited as the times. They included jewels, months of the year, flowers, and anything short-and-sweet. Here is a little inspiration from the 1910s and 20s. These baby names are brimming with life and personality and are just a little bit vintage.

  1. Born in 1910, my grandmother's name was Hazel. Good to see it was on the list. I always considered it an odd name. But apparently I was wrong.

  8. I love vintage names they carry such class. Lillian used to be my favourite name I was suprised that Rose (which is now my favourite name) wasn't featured on the list. The majority of the names on the list are gorgeous.
