THAT OLD CHESTNUT: These vintage monikers are pleasing parents

There have been all manner of unusual baby name crazes this year – and this one is no exception.

Apparently, parents are now taking inspiration from the roaring 20s.

The vintage monikers, which were popular around a decade ago, are making a comeback.

Parenting website Bounty compiled a list of names that were popular in the 1920s.

While each option peaked 100 years ago, they’ve all started roaring back into fashion.

Mabel and Elsie are among the monikers to make the girls’ top 5.

For boys, Leon, Vincent and Oscar were deemed to be some of the trendiest.

So would you choose any of these names for your little one?

Choosing the perfect name for your newborn can be a daunting task.

Previously, we revealed the monikers that have been trending during spring.

In recent weeks, there has also been debate about whether or not it’s wrong to call your child something unusual.

A Mumsnet user sparked discussion by slamming this baby name.

There was also uproar when a Netmums poster complained that hyphenated first names are “chavvy”.
