These are the Baby Names No One Is Using Anymore

We’ve recently shared everything from the 25 Summer Baby Names You Will Want to Use This Year to the Most Popular French Baby Names to the Hottest Baby Names of 2017. But there is one more list we’re intrigued by and that is the names no one is using anymore.

Parents today are looking for “names that feel fresh and interesting and will make a child stand out from the pack,” author and baby name expert Laura Wattenberg tells Real Simple. “This list of potential names that ‘nobody’ uses is essentially infinite. Even among names that have appeared in the statistics in past years, there are more than 70,000 that are currently out of circulation.”

To compile the list, Nameberry took the Social Security Administration’s 2016 baby names and compared it with their complete baby name database. Here are a few of the top contenders on the list of names nobody uses:
