    I happen to think Heather is a lovely, classic name

    I think of my grandmothers names of Gertrude, Eileen and Joyce and Grandfathers names like Stanley and Robert and wonder if they'll ever come back around.

    I know heaps of Frank's- very popular with Maltese/Italian backgrounds.
    Linda/lindy is quite common still with Vietnamese backgrounds.

    Stephen cracks me up. Pedro pony on Peppa Pig has a stick insect called Stephen. I laugh every time I hear it.

    Yep, I would actually say Gus is very 'in' right now.

    I knew a baby Humphrey about 10 yrs ago. It's quite cute! I would never use it, though. Also, I met a 2 yr old Maurice at the park last week.

    Some names that I'm not sure will make a comeback:

    Rhonda
    Basil
    Blanche
    Rodney
    Gary
    Roger
    Brian
    Derek
    Leslie (male)
    Barry
    Robyn
    Narelle
    Sandra
    Barbara
    Trevor
    Glenys
    Gordon
    Neville
    I know a 5 year old called Basil and a 2 year old called Trevor. I never would have thought people would choose those names now but its such an individual choice. I can't see them becoming popular/common again though

    When I was nannying in the US in 2008 my employer was pregnant with her third and had quite a few pregnant friends. I remember them talking about how handsome the name Graham was... I remember being all I had them clarify a few times because I couldnt quite believe it.

    Default Do you think there are names that will never make a comeback?

    my friends hubby is called Graham. would have to be one of the clunkier boys names that comes to mind. what do you even shorten it to? gray? gray-ey?

    Stuart is another one I reckon isn't headed for a big comeback lol

    ETA: Eugene is also awful haha

    I don't think any names won't come back. I haven't seen any name here that is so awful I couldn't see anyone using (well maybe not Adolf)!

    My sons name has been mentioned as well as some I considered. I think pretty much anything goes and in the search for the unique we end of with the past.
