That includes baby names!!

What is old, can become new again.

Old-fashioned baby names that go back a century are positioned to make a big comeback, experts say.

Research conducted by the family genealogy company FindMyPast has concluded that baby monikers go in 100-year cycles, meaning certain names come in and out of fashion every century.

The researchers also noted in their reporting that the royal family — namely Prince Harry and Meghan Markle — have influenced the influx of old-timey names, Wales Online reported.
