In the ever-evolving tapestry of baby names, some classics have stood resilient like Elizabeth and Benjamin. Yet, as trends shift, a host of once-beloved names are teetering on the edge of history. Nameberry’s latest findings reveal a poignant countdown to obscurity for names that once echoed through countless homes.

The Social Security Administration’s data paints a clear picture: names that defined generations are now whispered to merely a handful of newborns. Imagine, the name Al, once bestowed upon 70,000 babies annually, is now a rare gem. And Bess, once a common refrain, now risks becoming a forgotten melody.

But as we bid adieu to these names, the zeitgeist ushers in a new era of inspiration. Today’s parents are turning to the silver screen, naming their bundles of joy after characters like Chani from “Dune: Part Two” and Penelope from “Bridgerton.”

Here’s a glimpse into the past with the Top 10 Baby Names on the Verge of Disappearance in 2024:


  • Al
  • Bernie
  • Bert
  • Bob
  • Cary
  • Chuck
  • Curt
  • Dom
  • Hal
  • Lorne


  • Bess
  • Cathy
  • Christi
  • Dierdre
  • Gail
  • Jeanie
  • Jodie
  • Kaye
  • Kerri
  • Meg

As we embrace the new, let’s take a moment to honor the names that shaped generations. Who knows? Perhaps the rarity will spark a revival.
