Old Fashioned Names ~ The Classics

CLASSIC NAMES are making a comeback in a huge way in Hollywood. It's not surprising that Actors will turn to works of literature, old movies, plays or perhaps a family name that has been passed down through many generations or holds a branch of it's own on a family tree. Statistically, these names stand the test of time and the trends to maintain their spots in the top 10 throughout the last century while other names that haven't seen popularity in decades are back in favour.
