These VERY old fashioned names are making a comeback… but would you call your child Elton or Betsie?

PICKING out a baby name is a big responsibility and is often the cause of many a sleepless night for new parents.

Only joking – there's usually a far louder and more dominating cause of the sleepless nights, but it is still something parents have to think about.

Many people use the most popular names of the year as a starting point for their deliberations and at the moment an unlikely collection of monikers are storming the charts.

Old-fashioned names are making a comeback and we're here for it.

It's been a while since we've met a baby Aldora, Betsie or Elby and we're ready.

According to Nameberry the official "comeback kids" of the names chart are any name that slipped off the radar – ie was used by fewer than five people for ten years straight – and then shot back into the public consciousness.

The biggest return has been made by Lilibet, a moniker than hasn't been featured in any listings since 1999 but was catapulted back after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle used the name.

While those that have been out of action for the longest are Enzie for girls, that was last seen in 1898 and Loyall for boys, that was last seen in 1915.

Plus multicultural names which are often not picked by English-speaking parents like Francoise and Amato.
