Classic baby names
The names moms and dads chose for their babies during this time of change and turmoil are enjoying a boost in popularity with modern parents. Some names retain their old-timey feel while others sound familiar to us because they have remained popular in some form or fashion in the intervening decades. Classic names, for the most part, sound really precious to today’s parents, which explains their increased use.
Here are some of the coolest names that parents used in the 1930s. All of these names were in the top 200 for the entire decade (from 1930 to 1939). Maybe one will make its way to your baby name list.

Are you up for an old-fashioned, classic name for your baby? If these don’t work for you, search your family tree to see if any of your family members have really great or unusual first or middle names. You may be able to modernize one or use it as a middle name that connects your baby to your ancestors — and how cool is that?
