These 36 Baby Names Are At Risk of Going EXTINCT! Is Yours On The List?

Parenting website Babycentre have revealed a list of names that used to be super popular, but are yet to be registered in 2017!


Names like Debra, Elaine, Sandra and Tracey are all at risk of becoming no-more.


Know a Dennis, Nigel or Roy? They might soon have limited edition names too!


I wonder if it’s because of celebrities choosing unusual names, such as John Legend and Chrissy Teigen with their baby Luna, or Kim and Kanye with North and Saint, that it’s becoming trendy to name your child something less traditional?
