I was on Babynameworld.com and I realized as I was going through all the popular names back in the 1880's that it has a similar style to the names we use today.

:. We have very traditional names at the top: Emily, Emma, Hannah, etc.
:. Trendy: Gladys, Gertrude will become Madison and Addison.
:. Nickname phenomenon. ie: Mamie are now Allie, Addie and Ellie

What do you guys think of this.

They say names go in 100 year cycles! I love all the 'grandma' names that are in style right now/

I think this is funny how stuff like this works. It's the circle of life! haha lion king lol I do love the so called grandma names & to think of it I never thought I would. Just like fashion & movies they do the remakes of old classic's just like names but some of the new classic's Madison & Adison Caiden & Aiden aren't my fave's.
