The Best 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 (for both girls and boys) have stood the test of time. They’ve become classics for good reason. Unlike infinity-symbol tattoos or gender reveals, old-fashioned baby names age well.  Old-fashioned names forego trends and give the first impression of someone wiser than their years. From classy names for girls to old-timey names for boys, these are 114 of the best old fashioned baby names.
