Though there is a fascination of using unique baby names, there is also a growing trend of bringing back traditional, antique-like names for your future child. Names like Evelyn, William, and Clara are all top chart names that have been around for ages (and probably aren't going anywhere soon). But there are also many once common baby names that have become extinct in recent years. And although you may not be tempted to revive some of them, a few have become very unique and could definitely stand to have the dust brushed off of them.
Most of the names on this list haven't seen the top 100 or even 1000) charts in a century or more, but that doesn't negate the beautiful stories, meanings, or history behind them. Even if Dolores or Bill isn't top on your list (and, lets be honest, it probably isn't) it's fascinating to learn about the ebb and flow of popular names in our society.
And who knows? You may be tempted to add a few of these virtually extinct names to your checklist. Or maybe even use one as a middle name. You can almost guarantee that your baby will be the only one with these unusual monikers.
