Baby Name Tuesday: Week 8

Hello! Can you believe it's week 8? :-O Already? Wow! Well, this week I'm still continuing on with my decade series, but also combining it with celebrity baby names (which was the winner in my poll). I hope you like it!

This week, I'm focusing on most popular baby names from 1900-1909. Many celebrities within the past 6 years have chosen very vintage (yet gorgeous) names for their kids. Here are some below!
Tori Spelling and her husband welcomed Hattie Margaret last year. Both of these names were very popular in the 1900s (Hattie was #64 and Margaret was #3).
Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson’s first daughter, Pearl Bailey, was born in 2005, however her name has been around for a lot longer. Pearl was #31 in the 1900s.
Angeline Jolie and Brad Pitt have a beautiful little girl named Vivienne. While her spelling wasn't very popular in the 1900s, the more traditional spelling of Vivian was #129.
Jennifer Garner and her husband Ben Affleck welcomed baby Samuel this year. He is just precious- and Samuel (#39) is such a cute name.
Last year, Prince Frederik and Princess Margaret of Denmark welcomed twins! Both have very classic and vintage names. The oldest is Prince Vincent (#114) Frederik Minik Alexander (#97) and his twin sister is Princess Josephine (#37) Sophia (#196) Ivalo Mathilda.
These are just some of the many celebrity vintage baby names out there! Personally, my favorites would have to be Vivienne and Samuel. What are yours?
