Girls’ names to save from extinction
Our pick of girls’ names that are falling from favour but could be worth reviving
After pouring over the most popular names of this year, we’ve also taken a look at the girls’ names set to disappear altogether.
Some might say that these have had their heyday, but if you’re genuinely looking for an unusual name, we encourage you to check these out and ask could it be time for a revival?
For example, if you favour soft sounding names ending in an “ee” sound, you could save Lindsey, Janey or Dusty from extinction. But if you prefer names ending in a A/Ah sound Pamela, Imelda, Elma, Edna and Fenella are all facing extinction and could make quirky cute choices for modern day baby girls.
Here are our top 25 names that could be worth reviving as they also give you the option of an uncommon name that is unlikely to be heard in today’s school playgrounds.
