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.
I also know heaps of "Gus"s.
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.
My son is M a r c u s. A lot of people find that very old fashioned
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.
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.
