114 Old-Fashioned Baby Names (That Aren’t Liam)

In case grandpa's name won't do, here are some of the best old-school baby names.

There’s good reason so many people name their children after a favorite grandparent or great aunt. Old-fashioned baby names or even middle names (for both girls and boys) have stood the test of time. Unlike infinity-symbol tattoos or gender reveals, when you hear an old-fashioned girls name or old-fashioned boy name 10 years from now, you won’t think, “What was going on with the world that society collectively deemed this cool?” They’re classic, classy, and give the first impression of someone wiser than their years.  Here are 114 of the best old fashioned baby names.
