Classic and timeless baby names that are perfect for your modern baby

One name has remained popular throughout all these years. Find out which that is, here.

The most popular baby names change every year, and what’s in fashion is highly dependent on culture and current events and trends. However, the website Findmypast has found that one name hasn’t gone out of fashion in the last 100 years.

According to Huffington Post, the website looked at records from the 1911 census, the 1939 register, and official survey results from 2015 to see how trends in baby names have changed in the last 100 years.

They found that the name William has continuously placed as one of the top 10 most popular baby names over the last century.

One other interesting finding: the trends in male names don’t seem to be as volatile as female names, which are far more affected by what’s in fashion! Popular boys’ names don’t change as much over the years.

These are the timeless, elegant baby names that've never gone out of fashion in the last 100 years:
