Despite any stigma against names that are too old, over-used, or, dare I say it, out dated, there is definitely something to be said about choosing a timeless baby name for your little one. Contrary to what you may think at first glance, timeless doesn't mean over-used or cliche. Rather, it brings to mind words like classic, historical, and long-standing.
Names that have stood the test of time are popular for a reason, and usually have enough history and depth to put most modern, unique names to shame. Whether you're looking for a gender-neutral option, something short and sweet, or a name with an important meaning, turning to the classics won't disappoint. These names also make great options for middle names because they pair well with shorter, more original names.
A lover of timeless names myself, I can't think of many things sweeter than a baby with a name fit for a little old lady, or a character from a classic novel. Not surprisingly, I chose timeless names for both of my daughters because I know that when they're older, their names will still be beautiful, regardless of what the newest trendy names are, because they've stood the test of time.
