When it comes to baby names, I certainly prefer ones that are unique or more old-fashioned. We named our daughters Adair (Addie), Ingrid, and Margot.

Baby name trends are certainly changing. There’s been a huge shift over the past few years, with more and more parents reverting to old-fashioned or “vintage” baby names!

Here are some of my favorites …
