There's a big benefit to choosing a classic name for your baby boy or girl — old-fashioned baby names never go out of style. With choices spanning from the Victorian era to the Roaring '20s to the Rockin' 1950s, you're sure to find a baby name that's the bee's knees.
Fads in baby naming come and go faster than bad fall TV pilots -- it's true. But classic, old-fashioned names stand up to the test of time.
