Vintage names are trending this year – here are our top picks

Vintage baby names are growing in popularity this year with the trend emerging as one of the most popular of 2023.

According to BabyCenter’s Rebekah Wahlberg, vintage names are seeing a rise in popularity.

She told Fox News that old-fashioned names are very popular at the moment.

“Parents have been taking a lot of interest in names that were big many decades ago, especially for girls.”
