30 Rarely Used Baby Names Worth Bringing Back

When we think of uncommon baby names, we often go straight to quirky celebrity baby names like Bronx and Apple. But if you think about it, out-there names are sort of normal nowadays, and classic names that were popular years ago have stopped being used.

Giving your child a name that hasn't been popular in recent years means that while their name will be different to all their friends, they might still find it on a key ring. The popularity of these baby names has steadily declined in the past few decades, so if you're looking for something unique for your little one, consider bringing them back.
