There are girls’ names that simply don’t get used anymore

I’m currently pregnant with my second child and as one does, I’ve started thinking about names. We will know the gender soon, so I’ve been looking at both boys and girls names. And, just out of curiosity I decided to check on the meaning of my first and middle names – neither of which I would want to pass on to my children, but anyway.

Going, going, gone!

Not only did I find out the meanings of my names but also that my first name is basically extinct – people are just not giving their darling little daughters the name ‘Debbie’ anymore. Not that I’m shocked, it really is a name that ran its course a very long time ago. And with gorgeous, modern names doing the rounds, who can blame them?

Here are a few more girls’ names that are basically (if not already) extinct – is yours on the list?
