It’s no secret that picking out a name for your baby can be hard.

For some parents, the process involves meticulous research and countless name books. For others, it’s as simple as looking back down the family tree for inspiration.

But if vintage names are your favourite – you’re in luck. Old fashioned names, such as Nora, Audrey, and Alfie are super popular right now. Actually, it’s predicted 2018 will be a year of name nostalgia.
