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

    We have a Winifred in DS2 playgroup she's 2.5 and Winnie for short I love it!

    Edit - one of the names on DS2 list would have been shortened to Gus. The name is back on our shortlist for DS3 😄

    Winnie is cute!!

    I'd say winsome is probably less likely to ever be used again than Winifred

    I'm not sure some names will ever make a real comeback, even if there are the odd few kids around with the name.

    Some of the boys names I just can't see really coming back:

    Frank
    Colin
    Garry
    Darren
    Ralph
    Norman

    Girls names are harder. There's been so many I thought would never come back, and then they do! My mum's name is Robyn and we'll be using that as a middle name for our girl. I don't think that name will be making much of a comeback, obviously we're using it for honorary purposes, although I don't mind it as a name anyway.
    If we were having a boy, DH wanted to use his dad's name as the middle name - Colin. Not a fan. Glad we're having a girl now. Lol.

    I think all my 3 kids' names easily fit in this category. Old names, but not used much, and probably won't make a massive comeback. I am a huge fan of old names. The only downside is there are never any water bottles or key rings with their name on it in shops.

    I think this thread has pretty well covered the names of my entire extended family - my parents generation and older that is.

    ETA I lie the thread has also covered either the first or middle names of me and my siblings.

    Olivette - my Nan's name. It's a pretty name but I can't imagine it being used now.
