Ten baby boy names forgotten in time – but we think they deserve a chance



Love the idea of baby names that not everyone else has used?

Then you might have to look back in time.

Baby names, like trends in general, have a tendency to come back in fashion again if you leave it long enough, and these baby boy monikers, while not in the most popular lists right now, are bound for a comeback soon, we think.

Tell us – would you consider any of the following:

1. Denver

Old English baby name that means ‘green valley.’

2. Hardy

Ever read the Hardy Boys books back in the day?

3. Orin

A variation of the Hebrew name Oren, which means ‘pine tree.’

4. Conrad

An old German name that has already started climbing slowly in the popular lists again.

5. Edison

An Old English title that means “prosperity” and “wealth.”

6. Rupert

You could call him Ru for short!

7. Alton

An old English name that actually means ‘old town’ – we reckon this one is a cool choice.

8. Wiley

This Scottish name is a take on the name William

9. Florian

Elegant and unusual, we are obsessed with this name.

10. Alvin

Alvin comes from the Old English Ælfwine which means “friend of the elves.”
