Top 25 names going out of style

Is your name about to be lost forever?

It's almost impossible to find a 21st-century baby named Margaret or Delbert. For most, those names trigger nostalgia, but for new generation babies, they sound outdated and almost foreign.

Names are just fashion trends, they come and go...and some just disappear and will never be re-lived. "Naming your baby daughter after a flower may have been all the rage in the sixties, but now giving her a more traditionally male name is more in style", says Moose Roots
