100+ Old Fashioned Baby Boy Names Making a Comeback in 2021

Old-fashioned and vintage baby boy names – grandpa names are in!

How hard is it to choose the perfect name for your baby boy? It gets even harder when you’ve got to actually agree on that name with your partner… especially if you love different styles.

Do you love trendy names?

Unisex names?

Nature names?

Unique names?

It’s tough! I spent hours scrolling through baby name apps ‘favoriting’ every name possibility I thought could work. I’m sure you probably are too.

You might’ve also noticed there’s a huuuuge resurgence right now in old-fashioned ‘grandpa’ names coming back into fashion. If that’s your style, then I have a treat for you. It’s actually one of 2021’s biggest trends in naming.

Here are over 100 beloved ‘grandpa’ names due to make a comeback in 2021!
