    Hazel is making a comeback, I know 3 little girls named Hazel now...One of them is Hazel Pearl and I also know 2 other lo's named Pearl!

    "Old Lady" names are really popular right now...

    Mabel is the only one I can think of though that isn't on your list.

    Some of the old names were pretty cool! Ok I have to take Hazel off my list.

    To me the most obvious name for this list is not here:

    NANCY


    I don't know a single woman with that name who isn't under 50 at least.

    I dont think a lot of these names really are not widely used. Just cause a name isn't as popular as Emma doesn't mean it isn't used. FORGIVENESS MAN
