Almond – Given to six baby boys in 1885, this could be a tribute to the humble nut, or potentially a variation of the name Almund.
Harm – In 1904 there were nine Harm's born in the States. Originating from the Dutch Herman, the name doesn't translate well in English.
Spicy – Five daughters were called Spicy in 1883. Goodness knows why.
Man – Much like Ronseal, this name does exactly what it says on the tin. There were five boys who were creatively called Man in 1884.
Wealthy – Potentially in an attempt to manifest some moolah, seven sets ofparents decided to call their daughter Wealthy in 1887.
Branch – This one was handed out to seven lads in 1889. Although the name experts at NameBerry did suggest that Branch could have a resurgence as a solid unisex moniker for the modern age.
Bush – Exactly like Branch, seven children were called Bush in 1889. Unlike Branch, no one predicts that Bush will make a comeback.
Cappie – In 1883 five baby girls were called Cappie after a character in the novel The Hidden Hand. I went to school with a girl called Cappie so maybe it's creeping back in.
Cinnamon – A whopping 202 girls were christened Cinnamon in 1969. It's thought that this spike was due to two songs – Cinnamon by Derek and Cinnamon by Neil Young.
Doll – While many will assume that this is a sweet name for little girls, it is in fact a hit with the little lads. With German origins, the unusual name was popular for baby boys in 1902.
Girtha – Yes Gertha managed to make it's way back into our consciousness butit's a stretch to think Girtha will do the same. 1903 saw a total of 13 little Girtha baby girls.
These are the old fashioned baby names set to make a comeback and it looks like Peaky Blinders is part of the reason why.
