Naming your baby for your favorite character in a book, TV show, or movie isn’t entirely new. In this pop cuture-centric world, it’s no surprise that these names keep popping up over the years.

For parents who particularly love “old school” names, there are lots of choices that are trending this year, including Maeve, Amelia, Astrid, Evelyn, Elodie, Hazel, Silas, Theodore, Arthur, Louis, and good, old fashioned Jack.

In a world where super-unique baby names have become the norm, parents seem to be breaking the mold by going with classic, simple names as well as names found in the Bible or ancient myths.
