With parents becoming increasingly creative with their baby names, it’s hard to believe that classic monikers are trending. However, according to genealogy research engine MooseRoots, classic names are coming back in full force.

Earlier this year, Jamie King chose the name Leo for her second son, while Carey Mulligan named her baby girl Evelyn. If this isn’t enough proof that timeless monikers are on the rise, then take a look at the slideshow below.

Using data from U.S. Social Security and U.S. Census Bureau, MooseRoots found 30 classic names that have regained popularity in the past few years. Specifically, these monikers ranked in the top 200 before 1930, but lost their standing until the 1980s.

So if you’re looking for a unique baby name with a timeless appeal, look no further than these monikers below.
