    I like Melinda. I was in school on the 80's. Popular names were Melinda, Belinda, Kimberly Samantha and Joanne.

    They will most likely be popular again in 50 years. If I am lucky to live long enough to see my great grandchildren I wouldn't be surprised if one was named Belinda

    Belinda was my favourite name as a kid (early 90s). I so desperately wanted my name to be Belinda! Cassandra was another popular one.

    Yep I was born early 80s and we had a tonne of Cassandras in my year. I was also desperate for my parents to call my baby sister Stephanie

    I like Melinda. It wasn't popular at all where I grew up.

    I was an 80s baby, and the most popular girls names at my school (so early 90s) were Jessica, Rebecca, Melissa, Amy, and Samantha. There were 3 or 4 of each of these in all my classes throughout school. I think in good time they could make a comeback

    Exactly the same. So many Rebecca's Samantha's and Jessica's!

    I always loved Melinda as a kid but never knew any
