Picking Out the Trendiest Baby Names

You may have heard the old adage that history tends to repeat itself, and there is a commonly held notion that this takes place about every twenty years. I thought it might be fun to take a look back at the most popular baby names of the past three decades too see if they might come back into fashion.

I've personally seen names such as Hazel, Emily, Elizabeth and Martha come back into style in our area. You'll notice many of the names on each of these lists seem to be popular no matter what the decade.

If you're picking out names for your newest addition to the family, congratulations! Maybe you'll find something trendy on one of these lists.
