Nicky Hilton pulled out a pile of classics to name her new baby
Nicky Hilton Rothschild and her husband, James Rothschild, welcomed their first child into the world — and the baby name they chose couldn't be more classic, as a source confirmed to E! News that little Lily Grace Victoria Rothschild has arrived.
Nicky, who was born Nicholai Olivia Hilton, married the British banking heir in 2015, and they've been excitedly planning for their baby's arrival for months.
With a gorgeous photo like this, it's no wonder she and her husband went the classic route with their baby's name. And although classic baby names are definitely on the rise nationwide (Lily, for example, was the 25th most popular girl name in 2015, and Grace checked into the 19th spot while Victoria stepped in right behind it in spot 20), the three names strung together definitely give off a vintage vibe that suits the family well.
The Hilton family has a lot of names that get handed down to babies, which isn't unusual for powerful families. The name Barron, for example, has been handed down through the family for several generations (in fact, one of Nicky's brothers is named Barron). It got its start in the family as the maiden name of Nicky's great-grandmother, who was married to hotelier Conrad Hilton — the driving force behind Hilton Hotels.
Lily Grace Victoria, though, has a name all on her own within her family. With more and more classic, vintage baby names becoming popular, it's nice to see that these old-timey baby names are sounding fresh and new again.
You don't have to choose a top 20 baby name to find a charming, classic name, either. There are tons to choose from that hail from popular names in decades past, such as Vivian, Adeline and Mattie.
Congrats, Hilton and Rothschild families — we can't wait to see pics of your new little cherub.
