Historical names are making a comeback and rightfully so because they are cute and hold strong memories. Here are my top favorite ones for boys and girls!
I recently saw, SIX the musical and it really got me thinking about how historical names should and are making such a resurgence for baby names.
Whether you are having a little Queen or little King, Caden Lane has personalized baby items fit for royalty!
I am loving these items fit for a tiny princess:
Historical Girls Names
Catherine or Katherine
Speaking of SIX the musical, King Henry VII’s six wives and almost half of them were named Catherine so this name comes from a long line of strong women!
Anne or Ann
I love both spellings and this is an adorable first name or middle name. I especially love when it’s used as a double name like Anne Kate or Ann Katherine.
Jane or Jayne
The modern use of a “y” is so cute and perfect for a unique little girl!
So maybe this is the most basic name on the list, but Mary paired with a more masculine middle name is just a perfect balance like “Mary Scott”!
I love the nicknames that could come from this sweet girl name like Tory or Vicki!
Cleo (short for Cleopatra)
She’s bound to change history and do so in a stylish way!
Any oldie, but a goodie!
Definitely feels a bit English to me, but I love that it could have so many variations like Maggie, Margie, or Meg.
With a namesake like Joan of Arc this is the perfect name for a tough little girl!
Love it as a first name, middle name, or even a variation like Liz or Beth! Seriously this name is so Royal to me!
Historical Boy Names
With these names, I love this item for a little prince:
Paxton’s Plaid feels like such a Royal option to wrap a little fella in:
Strong and genuine!
My own little guy’s name! Honestly this name is used by about half the men in my family so it’s a good one for sure just like the guys with this name!
Royal, but still approachable. Love that as a little baby you could use Georgy!
This name means “free man” so it’s perfect for a little boy that is bound to be a free spirit!
“Resolute protector” it has been a go-to name for kings or for the little ruler of your heart!
Definitely historical tracing all the way back to Biblical times.
I immediately think of Mark Twain, but this name is classic!
A bit formal, but so perfectly masculine!
Charlie, is the cutest nickname for this more mature moniker! Also, Charles is a great middle name too!
For a little boy who’s bound to be GREAT!
Fit for a Prince!
Hopefully this list helped you find a name that will be making HISTORY in your home and family for years to come!
