There's certainly a trend in Hollywood toward giving girls a traditional boy name. Jessica Simpson named her daughter Maxwell Drew. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis named their daughter Wyatt. Then Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively named their daughter James. If you like the idea of giving your baby girl a boy's name -- or just like old-fashioned boy names -- there's a pretty untraditional place you can get some great ideas. Your local cemetery.

Hey, don't knock it. If you like old-fashioned baby names, you can't get much more vintage than those culled from a bunch of centuries-old headstones. Plus, the names are kind of spooky, too. Take a look at these 30 names we found at the graveyard.

These are all traditional male names, but might they might just work for your little bundle of femaleness too. I mean, if you're into that kind of thing.
