Baby names are something that definitely fall into trends, and one of the most popular trends in recent years is the recycling of old-fashioned names. The likes of Edie, Arthur, and Ada are all prime examples of vintage names that have had a resurgence in recent years, but there are plenty more where they came from that haven’t yet been revived.

Baby naming website Nameberry drew up a list of names that all featured within the top 500 most popular back in 1918-100 years ago-but which haven’t featured in any of the top 1,000 names in recent decades. These, Nameberry predicts, are likely to becoming increasingly chosen by parents keen to call their children something relatively unique.

You won’t spot any Olivias or Jacks in this list, but make room for Agatha and Wiley!
