My Favourite Traditional Baby Names

Last week I published a post discussing the suggestion that certain popular American baby names were going to "make it big" here in the UK, and it attracted lots and lots of you lovely reader types (seems you're just as in to discussing what other people name their offspring as I am). Because I took the list from elsewhere (thanks Netmums) there were some in there that weren't to my liking, so I thought I'd write another Baby Name post, this time with some of my favourite names.
 
Today I've decided to concentrate on traditional, classic names. Some of these might feature on the shortlist for Baby, who should be with us in the next week or so - but I'm not going to tell you which, if any, as we're keeping shtum about our naming intentions for now.
 
Let me know what you love, and don't love from this list, and feel free to share your own traditional favourites.

  1. I love the old fashioned names and I really love quite a few on the list. Mabel and Wallace are my faves for girls. Everett and Sebastian for a boy. :)
