What Goes Around, Comes Around: These Jazz Age Names Are Back, Baby
According to name search engine and inspiration generator, Nameberry, there’s a theory called the “Hundred Year Rule”. It explains that it takes one century for an alias to rid of its reputation as an old person name and be used by a new generation of parents. So, in today’s terms, that means: move over, Blue Ivy and Stormi Webster because Phyllis and Chester are back on trend.
But picking a name is not a decision made lightly, unless they decide to change it at a later time — it’s forever. So, for the future well-being of your child, think carefully and choose wisely.
If you’re searching for a unique but tried and tested name to call your child, we’ve selected a few from Nameberry’s Top 100 Names of the 1920s to stir up some ideas.
