Vintage baby names have had a huge revival recently and lots of lovely old fashioned Victorian names like Florence and Amelia have suddenly become very popular. Almost too popular.
So if you want a unusual vintage girl’s baby name you need to look forward a little to the 1920s to all those wonderful vintage names that have been forgotten for babies for so long.
These vintage baby names are rare now but coming from the 1920s and the early days of modernism, they have a refreshingly modern twist to them compared with all the old fashioned Victorian names that went before.
In this big list of vintage girls names from the 1920s and 1930s, you’ll find everything from the super cute to the seriously classy and hopefully a name totally perfect for your baby.
Now, I know some of them will have you wincing with horror but that’s how fashion in names works.
Lots of these names are from the biggest style influencers of the 1920s and 30s : the great Hollywood movie stars. Many of the names then became so common in the 40s that they peaked and fell out of fashion.
It’s easy to write some of these names off as just “old fashioned” and a bit blaah but if we can take off our blinkers for a moment these names really do have the same freshness they did back in the 1920s.
And the thing is baby names basically work on 100 year cycles so all the little girl’s names super popular in the 1920s census records are just about to come roaring back
Do check them out and let me know if you find something you love. Or for that matter even those you really hate!
