Our Favorite Vintage Baby Name Ideas

If you're like me, you've probably had a running list of baby names since you were 16. You want a name for your baby that is unique enough that they won't have to choose between going by their actual name, or a nickname at school, but classic enough that it will never go out of style and that they'll be able to grow into. Well, that's why I love vintage baby names. They're perfect for any age, and kids the same age probably won't have the same name as them. We've put together a list of our favorite classically vintage baby names to help you find a name you love. We hope you find one that works for your sweet babe!



  • Margo - When I hear this name, I just think of a strong, independent woman who's going to change the world.
  • Molly
  • Dorothy - The Wizard of Oz was my favorite movie growing up so I might be a little bit biased but such a cute name! Plus, she'll always have a go-to Halloween costume!
  • Annie - I love nicknames as full names, but you could totally name your little girl something like Elizabeth or Annabell, and call her Annie!
  • Lucy
  • Alice - Are you kidding me?? Too cute! Again, with the built in Halloween costume!
  • Louise
  • Mabel - This is probably one of the more old fashioned names on this list, but just picturing a little newborn baby named Mabel makes me want to go out and buy baby clothes!
  • Nora
  • Eleanor
  • Jane - Jane is that nice girl in Kindergarten that shares her crackers with you at snack time. 
  • Sophie
  • Caroline - This name literally means beautiful and your little girl will feel so special when the song "Sweet Caroline" comes on at sporting events.
  • Ruth - I love this name and would probably use the nickname Ruthie... can you think of a cuter name??


  • Ezra - Boy names are hard for me but Ezra has been on my list for years. It's the perfect amount of classic and modern.
  • Henry
  • George
  • Charlie - My grandfathers name is Charles so this name has always been on my list as a nod to my grandpa.
  • Theodore - Teddy? So cute!
  • James
  • Oliver - Again, the perfect amount of classic and modern!
  • Sebastian
  • Milo - I unfortunately can't use this name because I have a dog named Milo... but I think it would be perfect for a little boy.
  • Atticus
