The name Mary is not quite as common as her first impression would make it out to be. Mary is the English version of Maria, which ultimately came from the Hebrew name Miriam. Mary was ranked number one for girls up until the mid-twentieth century, but since then, its many derivatives have become much more common.
Personally, we think that the name should make a comeback. It’s classic and simple. So, when we think of Mary, we obviously think of Mary Poppins. Then we think about Mary-Kate Olsen, Cameron Diaz as ‘Mary’, and Mary (better known as Meryl) Louise Streep.
Aubrey is a unisex name of French and English roots meaning "elf ruler." The name was a relatively popular choice for boys in England during the Middle Ages; then, the name started rushing up the girls' popularity charts, along with the revived Audrey. After being an exclusively male name, it tipped to female in 1974, probably because of a commercially successful song about a girl named Aubrey released in the 1970s.
One of the most iconic stars Audrey has to be, no doubt, Audrey Hepburn. Besides her iconic black dress and astonishing star qualities, Hepburn helped bring back the name to people's awareness thanks to the success of the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's."
It's official, Rosalie has been revived and burst onto the scene since its entry into the list of most-used names in 2020. And as with many on-trend girl names, the creative spellings have also started to roll in, although we are firm believers in sticking to the original. If you chose an uncommon spelling for your kid's name, at least don't get mad when people keep misspelling it.
Rosalee or Rosalie is not very common when it comes to celebs; however, we have a few. American actress Rosalie Hale opens the list of the fine and the famous, and tagging along behind is Rosalie Ward. The name is making a comeback; however, there is no clear verdict as to the correct way to spell it.
To us, Eloise will always be the bossy little girl creating mischief at the Plaza Hotel, but more recently, Eloise jumped back onto the popularity list, possibly thanks in part to the character on the hit TV series "Lost." With French and English origins Eloise means "healthy." There's also the Italian alternative, Eloisa, for added charm.
Nicknames might include Lolly, Ellie, or Lola. There are a few famous Eloise that are worth mentioning. Eloise Mumford, known and loved for her role in "Fifty Shades of Gray" opens the list, followed by Eloise Smyth, the British beauty who played the role of Flora in "The Frankenstein Chronicles."
Highly popular in English-speaking countries, and for good reason! The comeback of this sweet vintage name has been spurred by a bunch of glitterati Matildas, with many celebs favoring this name in recent years, probably because of the charming Roald Dahl heroine Matilda. Not to mention this name also has a selection of great nicknames: there's Tillie, Mattie, and Tilda.
2023 was young Matilda's year; however, the name has been going around for ages. The meaning of the name is Mighty in battle, and it was anglicized from its German origins. It represents strength, wisdom, and determination. Perdecr descriptions for Matilda Lowther, Mecini and Ziegler.
