Do you like old timey and grandparent names? I am a big fan of them, and it’s so sweet how old fashioned names come back in style over time. I once read that the best way to find an up and coming name is to look at what your grandparents were named, and I think it’s totally true. I love cute old names that have stood the test of time. So if you’re looking for a new name for a baby, pet, or character in a story, I think grandparent names are a good place to look.
If you just look at the most popular names this year, so many of them qualify as grandma and grandpa names. I’m seeing for Posie, Cora, Amelia, and Charlotte for grandmas and for Atticus, Theodore, Jack, and Henry for grandpas. See! Grandparent inspired names are so fun and cool. I also like how these grandparent name trends change as generations of grandparents change.
The trouble with grandparent names, however, is not every grandparent name stands the test of time. You don’t necessarily want the exact name your grandparent had for you or your kids! And that’s where my latest name generator comes in. It gives you many options for a grandma or grandma name. If you don’t like what you get, you can just take the quiz again.
