Five ‘lost’ baby names which are making a comeback

CHOOSING a name for your baby can feel like an impossible task.

Along with getting your family’s sign-off, parents have to find something that “suits” their little one and isn’t so popular that they’ll share their name with several classmates.

See? Impossible.

That said, if you’re struggling trying to balance all these factors, then Nameberry has revealed the top five “lost” baby names that are set for a comeback this year.

While analysing the most popular baby names over the past three years, the experts highlighted the monikers that appeared for the first time in several decades.

Coming in first place was the girl’s name Bee – which hadn’t been used in over twenty years until 2019.

Five ‘lost’ baby names set for a 2021 comeback:

  1. Bee – last recorded in 1996 for girls and 2000 for boys. In 2019, eight girls were given the name.
  2. Cobra – last recorded in 2005. In 2018, five boys were given the name.
  3. Garrhett – last recorded in 1997. In 2018, five boys were given the name.
  4. Pearlina – last recorded in 1970. In 2018, five girls were given the name.
  5. Saunders – last recorded in 2001. In 2018, five boys were given the name.

Two years ago, eight little girls were given the name for the first time since 1996.

What’s more, five boys were named Cobra in 2018 after a thirteen-year hiatus.

Meanwhile Garrhett also made a comeback having fallen out of fashion in the late 1990s.

The unusual name Pearlina was given to five babies back in 2018 – having remained unused for almost fifty years.
