No matter how fast we try to make a mad dash for the future, there will always be a part of our past we simply cannot leave behind. After all, certain things -- like classic baby names from a particular decade -- are timeless and boast true staying power. Don't believe us? Take a look at the names from the 1920s. They are classic, a little antique-y sounding, and have an old-school charm to them. 


As Laura Wattenberg, BabyNameWizard.com founder, notes, "Names of the early decades of the 20th century have renewed appeal as 'antiques'" -- particularly, titles from the Roaring '20s that continue to dazzle today.

"1920s favorites in particular are finding a new life: names like Vivian, Iris, and Max have come charging back into style," Wattenberg adds.

She was able to identify the ones with the most style clout that have the potential to make a huge splash in the next several years.
