15 Classic Baby Names | For Boys & Girls

Just like fashion, everything comes full circle and that includes babies names. We've gone through a classic phase, a crazy-zany made up phase and over the last ten years its clear to see that things started to settle down with the likes of - Charlotte, Emily, Megan and Ava.

Some people like to think outside of the box when naming their baby and that's OK. Some like to give their babies more classic names because they feel that a good solid name (that's well known) will give their baby a better start, and again, that's OK.

Each to their own. I personally like 'known' names but ones that have maybe fallen to the wayside or are not within the top twenty to fifty popular names for that year. But, then again I also love the sound of words, so sometimes I find myself drifting towards the more earthy and bohemian names types - it's a tough one trying to find names that fit between social rules and individualism isn't it?

So, if you're more of a classic name person hopefully these fifteen names inspire your next choice.

Emily | Hard working.
Cora | Maiden.
Florence | Blossoming.
Phoebe | The shining one.
Hope | Hope.
Genevieve | Tribe woman.
Felicity | Luck and good fortune.
Rose | Flower.
Matilda | Strength in battle.
Maude | Strong in war.
Eloise | Famous in war.
Olive | Olive.
Prudence | Good judgement.
Viola | Flower.
Opal |  Jewel.

And not forgetting about the boys, here are some cute but classic options too.

Orson | Little bear.
Oscar | Divine Spear.
Caleb | Faith, devotion and wholehearted 
Thomas | Twin
Joshua | A saviour.
Jared | Rose.
Seth | Replacement.
Enoch | Dedicated.
