iVillage.com: What Your Baby's Name Says About You

3 of 11

Vintage Names

Names like: Sadie, Birdie, Theo, Archie, Hattie, Clara, Cora, Frances, Beatrice, Everett

What it says about you: Parents who choose an old-fashioned name that’s been out of favor for decades (or centuries!) are actually fashion-forward. "As with most trends, names cycle in popularity,” says Amanda Elizabeth Barden, author of "Baby Names Made Easy."

"What once was in falls out of favor only to be loved again a few generations down the road." Rosenkrantz agrees. "Midcentury mom and pop names and Victorian names sound fresh again and are hot, so the parent who chooses one is on trend (and also impervious to the scorn of in-laws shocked by their choice of Ethel or Walter)." Vintage names also seem to have a big celeb appeal: just look at Tori Spelling's Hattie, Amy Poehler's Archie and Christina Applegate's Sadie Grace.
