30 Baby Names Set To Become Extinct & Join The Dinosaurs Universal /Instagram @ Chrissy Teigen

We thought extinction was just for things like dinosaurs and beautiful creatures that are way too neglected in our lifetime.

We were wrong - it turns out names can, too. 

Listen, I’m not comparing baby names to the Tasmanian Tiger, because that would be insensitive. 

But if you’ve been looking for a unique baby name for your future child, then one of these might be it!

BabyCentre compiled a list of once-popular baby names that have not been entered or registered on its database over the past year. 

Take a peek at the names below and let us know which names you like!

Boy's names heading into extinction territory: 
  • Bertram
  • Cecil
  • Clarence
  • Clive
  • Cyril
  • Dean
  • Dennis
  • Derek
  • Duncan
  • Ernest
  • Geoffrey
  • Horace
  • Leonard
  • Malcolm
  • Neville


Girl's names now under threat:
  • Beverley
  • Carol
  • Debra
  • Diane
  • Donna
  • Doris
  • Elaine
  • Joanne
  • Maureen
  • Paula
  • Sandra
  • Sharon
  • Sheila
  • Tracey
  • Wendy


Will these names make a comeback?

Or will they die out, become extinct and join the likes of the dinosaurs, and then be brought back to life with their very own iconic film thanks to some genetic engineering?

I guess we’ll see.
