Ada, Arthur, Bessie, Homer...??

Baby names are an ever-changing trend that swing between newfangled notions and adaptations from times gone by. But nowadays, most parents would prefer to call their child something a little bit different.

We learned lots of cool names when Dermot and Dave took a look at the Hottest Baby Name Trends For 2019, but Cosmopolitan have reported that the next wave is going to come from pre-1918.

D&D producer Maria Devereux talks us through some of these 100-year-old suggestions with the likes of Abe, Cornelius, Doyle, Homer, Agatha, Etta, Lulu and Mamie all making the list. You can check out the full list here.

Peaky Blinders has proven to be the inspiration for an increase in the name Arthur and Ada since 2014.
