55+ Vintage Boy Names You Don’t Hear Anymore

Welcome to this list of vintage boy names you don’t hear anymore!

And congratulations if you are expecting!

These are some badass old man names that might just be worth bringing back.

In case you are wondering how I came up with such a list, let me quickly explain where I got these names from.

I went to the ever informative social security name database here and compared names from the top 500 in the 1890’s to their popularity today. A couple of these names have started to make a subtle comeback in the last couple years, but most are pretty uncommon at the moment.
