It's no secret that I love a good throwback name. My own daughter's name is often referenced as a "little old lady name", so apparently I'm into them. A retro name can be a good way to give your little one a name that is unique, but not weird…there really is a fine line. The 1960's are a great place to start if you're looking for something that hasn't become trendy yet. Many of these names have been off the radar for some time now, but I think that's all the more reason that they're perfect - a good way to stay ahead of the baby naming trends! By Lauren Hartmann
