It can be difficult choosing a baby name. There is so much to consider – do you both like it, will it suit your child’s surname, and how can you know if the name is just another fad or whether it can last the test of time? Nameberry, the popular baby names website, has just published a cool list of baby names popular before 1850 that are still bound to find favour. Here are 16 Vintage Baby Names That Will Last Through Time.

Since baby name records in the US only started in 1880, the folks in Nameberry trawled through research done by Douglas Galbi, of census records from 1800 to 1850, to determine what baby names were popular before 1850.

And whilst expected names like John and Mary were the number 1 names for boys and girls in that time, the other common names of the era are all becoming popular again now. Indeed for the last few years, Emily and Charlotte for girls, and Daniel and James for boys have been in the top 5 of the most popular names.

So if you’re looking for baby names that have lasted the test of time, look no further:
