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

    I was just pondering this after I saw my MIL's middle name as someone's favourite name.
    I wonder for girls if the ettes or the eens will ever make a resurgence:
    Lynette
    Maureen
    Doreen
    Babette
    Colleen
    Jannette

    Boys:
    Denis
    Trevor
    Gary

    Pointless thread I know!

    There's names I hope never come back haha.

    I personally think many of the 70s names (ie - my era) are the worst. Think Gavin, Darren, Warren, Dwayne etc. I won't go into the girls ones as there's bound to be some on here! šŸ˜‰
