    I love old names, but there are some I think are terrible.

    Dirk, Paula, Maureen, Beverley, Gilda, Clive, Donald, Keith, etc.

    Then there are names where the negative associations will be too strong for it to ever make a comeback (Adolf)

    I have met some little kids (under 5) with the following names:
    Donna
    Diane
    Lance
    Each of them made me do a serious double take.

    My grandma's name is Dorothy I wish that would come back! The nickname Dottie is so cute!

    Fanny
    Gai

    Etta
    Maude
    Mavis
    Olwyn
    Beryl
    Shirley/shirleen
    Francis (boy)
    Norman
    Nigel
    Neil
    Bruce
    Daryl

    (Ps I was considering Dorothy for my dd2!)

    Sharon
    Patricia
    Frank

    Will there be many more Kylies or Belindas?
    (Not bad names, just late 70s/early 80s names)
