Phryne is probably up there with Triphena and Tryphosa. My DH thinks that Daphne is dead and buried. These are heading into the old fashioned Greek-sounding names. There are probably a lot from that pool you could use.
I am another who finds it hard to believe that names like Wayne, Darren and the like will come back. I've got a friend who once considered Crispin and Taliesin as names. I can't see them making a comeback though! But, pop culture will play a huge part. Who would ever have predicted Hermione would make a comeback prior to Harry Potter?

I thought Neville and Cecil would never come back but I've seen under 3 yr olds with both these names in the last month!

I love Daphne too. DH's childhood neighbour is a Daphne, and she is an amazing woman.

I know a Daphne, Keith, Harvey, Arthur and Stephanie - all under 5.
I really like a few names mentioned here like Frank and Percy and Dorothy. I also like Archie. But I like old fashioned names and DS's name is mentioned as one that has made a comeback.
Some names I dont think will make a comeback: Dolce, Rita, Sherry, Marsha, Lois, Roberta, Doris, Beryl, Beverley, Sharon, Shirley, Larry, Bruce (although i actually think this couls be pretty cute), Gerald, Walter, Carl
