In the baby-naming world, there's a traditional "100-Year Rule" that says a name takes 100 years to cycle from trendy, to overused, to old-fashioned, to cool again. (So maybe Jessica will be back in style in 2093?)

Names like Henry, Grace, Lillian, and Max are climbing toward the top of today's charts. But are there any names we're overlooking? Are there some 100-year-old names worthy of a comeback?
