Coming up with a clever name for a baby in Texas in 2024 can be difficult but can also be a lot of fun. While I have no kids, I can only imagine helping pick out a name for a newborn is exciting. My first thought would be that some people would choose a name that is already used in the family, possibly in honor of another family member. But there are some older sounding names that even if they are a family name, some people don’t want to pass that name along to the next generation.  

Old Baby Names

Parents seem to be using more unique names when picking out a name for their baby, the same old traditional names aren’t popping up on birth certificates as much as in the past. Obviously, every family is going to approach picking out a baby’s name differently. But it’s interesting to see this new trend of names.
