I love old fashioned baby names for girls. They’re just beautiful.
Some people have their babies’ names picked out from the very beginning. Either they were those people who sat around as teenagers dreaming up baby names in math class, or they have a family name that they plan on using.
I was always rather jealous of both of those types of people because naming a baby is such a stressful process! It’s hard enough to find ones that you like, but then your spouse also has to approve of it. It’s 100 times harder to come up with something that you both like and that neither of you associate with that obnoxious kid you knew in middle school.
Sometimes I find that it’s easiest to look at names that aren’t quite so popular. So I went back and found some old fashioned baby girl names for you! These were the most popular girls’ names way back in the early 1900s according to the Social Security Administration.
I expected the names from over 100 years ago to be mostly old fashioned names like Bertha and Thelma. And while those are totally on here, there are some really beautiful ones likes Catherine and Audrey that made the list too!
It makes me want to have 27 more little girls so that I can use all these names!
Just kidding. I don’t want that.
