Classic baby boy names never go out of style. Hopefully you’ll find a vintage baby boy name you love on this list!

What Makes a Baby Name Classic?

For inspiration for this list, I looked at the 100-year rule. Essentially, it means that things go in and out of style in our culture every 100 years or so.

Names that were popular 100 years ago are likely to start popping up again now on baby lists! The vintage, retro names that were popular when our grandparents were born are starting to make a comeback.

For this list of classic baby boy names, I looked through popular names for boys from the late 1800s and early 1900s, and picked the ones that parents today might find great too! These vintage baby boy names are such a fun mix of old-school classics, and trendy retro hits.
