Beautiful Girls’ Names That You Rarely Hear These Days

Nowadays, it’s normal to hear the names Blue or Isla being called out in the grocery store. But years ago, in a time before social media and Google, new moms tended to stick to good ol' fashioned monikers. Here are the most popular girls' names from decades gone by. They may not be all the rage right now, but we're sure they'll be making a comeback very soon...

Beverly

The name means “dwelling at the beaver meadow,” and if this fact was better known, we’re guessing the name might not have been as popular. Who knows?

Frances

This one means “free one” or “from France.” The first meaning is definitely more romantic, and both of these are still a better meaning than “dwelling at the beaver meadow.”

Jean

Another common name. It originated in Scotland as Jane or Jeanie and gradually made its way to the U.S. with an Americanized spelling. After the 1930s, the name quickly fell out of fashion.

Elizabeth

This name definitely stuck around after the '30s, but it garnered some major popularity during the time period. It translates to “my God is abundance” or “my God is an oath.” Pious.
