Names From the Victorian Era That Should Make a Comeback

The Victorian era - or the years of Queen Victoria's reign in England (1837 to 1901) - had its share of popular baby names, just like any other time period. While the timeless names that came out of this era may not be common today, they might be worth adding to your long list of potential names. Popular period dramas like Bridgerton have resurfaced 1800s-era names, highlighting them in pop culture. If you're looking for something that truly stands the test of time (Daphne and Simon, anyone?), there are plenty here to consider.
