  • It’s barely in the top 70 now, but Amelia is poised to move way up the charts in the coming decade or so. It has the double bonus of being both a grandma-name-turned-cool-again (it’s actually surpassed its ranking for the 1880s, when it averaged number 100) and sounding like the mega-popular names Emily and Emma...but somehow feeling vastly different. With its fun, slightly quirky vibe, Amelia’s a great choice for parents who want something a little more off the radar. (Not quite as off the radar as it used to be though -- in 10 years, the name’s risen 154 positions.)
