Never miss your favourite celebrity exclusives again!

Deciding on a name for your tiny tot can be a big decision.

It is important you get it right, as you wouldn’t want them to grow up and pen a bitter memoir about how they were teased in the playground due to your poor choice.

It’s best to select a moniker that both sounds appealing and will suit the child, whatever your particular tastes are.

But how do you go about choosing a name? You could select one that's very unique like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West who have called their kids North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.

Or be like Emmerdale stars’ Charley Webb and Matthew Wolfenden who have also chosen spectacularly original monikers for their kids, including: Buster, Bowie Grey and Ace Gene.

However, why not choose a name that has stood the test of time, and over a hundred years later is still well-liked by everyone. Less of a gamble isn’t it?

A study done by used data from the Office of National Statistics to examine the vintage baby names that are still popular today.

What they discovered is that 9 out of the 20 most popular boys names back in 1908 were also in the top 30 names of 2018.

It seems that although some of these names suffered a huge dip in usage they are now back on trend in recent years.

For example the name Arthur, which is the name of Billie Faiers' son, was the fifth most popular name in 1908 and in 2018 it was seventh most popular name, with 3,644 children given the name that year.

However from 1924 onwards it had actually dropped off the top 100 list. Just shows that every trend comes back around eventually.

Similarly the name Ada has seen a resurgence back to its former glory.

Back in 1908 it ranked at number 25, and in 1918 it ranked at number 65, but this is the first time it has hit the top 100 list since 1924.

Here are some of the names that make the top ten most popular list, which were also on trend over a hundred years ago. Take a look…
