  • I would name a kid Matilda, which is a granny name, I feel like, or Edie (for Edith) or Beatrice, Eleanor, or Francis. But I can't get behind Agnes or Doris for some reason.

    Edit: Louisa! I love Louisa!

    I wouldn't use that particular name but do prefer traditional names.

    If it meant something to me I might.  Doris is dated but it's not awful.  In case you hadn't noticed, Granny names are quite popular now days.

    Personally Doris no but Hilda is a pretty name and older fashioned names are coming back into fashion

    Yes!!!

    Doris is a diminutive of Dorcas.

    Maybe. Whatever will be, will be.

    Sure, especially if it is a family name.

    Names go in and out of style.   

    Doris, Hilda, Matilda, Betty...those were the popular names when those babies were born.   There is no lifetime warranty on the hip factor.

    If a person lives long enough - EVERY name will eventually become a "granny" name.

    YOUR name will eventually be a "granny" name.

    In another 100 years, the names that you consider to be "modern" will be the "granny" names to the next generations.

    There is nothing wrong with reviving a classic name.
