If you’re looking for old-fashioned charm, look no further than vintage girl names. These monikers have been turning up left and right on the charts recently as parents rediscover names in their family trees and beyond. While these old-fashioned girl names have history, they’re not at all dusty, turning heads with their beauty.

There is no need to worry over being out of fashion, as vintage girl names include some of today’s hottest names like Amelia and Emma. You can also find picks like Stella and Hazel, two popular picks reminiscent of the Roaring 1920s. Seeking something a touch rarer? How about the equally fashionable Florence or Martha?

Of course, the trend is also teeming with unisex picks that are adorable like Billie and Frankie. These spunky names are common among vintage baby girl names with sweethearts like Nellie and Minnie just waiting to be loved. Sadie and Ruby have already spread like wildfire, but if you ask us, Betty and Lula are just as gorgeous and likely to catch on next.

Whether you’re looking for a flapper girl name or seeking out a Victorian-era princess, we have all the vintage girl names waiting on our list.
