The 1980s are having a major moment. Pages of slap bracelets are available on Amazon, Journey is a perennial best seller on iTunes, and babies of the decade are in search of '80s-inspired baby names for their little ones. Will the next little girl at your child’s preschool be a Madonna? Because that would be most excellent.
Parents of this tubular decade have some interesting pop culture to use as inspiration for baby names. My own mother caught a Fleetwood Mac performance on MTV in the middle of 1985, liked the sound of Lindsey Buckingham’s name, and boom: I was christened Lindsay. I mean, it could have been a lot worse – I could be Axl Rose Mack or something. (Just kidding. That would have been totally radical!)
So here is a list of some baby names that only a true '80s baby would pick for their children. By remembering some of the best tv shows, films, and music of the era, you just might come across the perfect name for your own little gremlin. Dust off those cassettes, rewind the VHS tapes, and get ready for the best baby names inspired by the 1980s.
