In a series of videos, Morgan shares quirky and rare names from the pages of yearbooks that she predicts may one day make a comeback.
a new clip, which achieved over 21,000 views, saw her talk about names for babies from the 1920s that she thinks would be loved by parents today.
From 1922 she began using the name Dorothea, which she believes to mean the ” Taylor Swift Effect,” as it was the name of a song on the star’s recent Evermore album.
Theo and Ollie were also potential girl name candidates to make a comeback, as they sounded “cute” and “gender-neutral.”
Other names on the list included Lou, Althea, Birdie, Golda, Lovie, and Blossom.
For the boys, Morgan chose names from a 1929 Galesburg yearbook, including Clifford, Arthur, Howard, Mack, Forrest, Eldon, Evertt, Percy, Von, Leon, and Dale.
People in the comments loved the videos and many thanked her for sharing them.
One person said: “I’m a writer and every time I need a character name I come straight to your page. I love it!”
“Thanks. I was looking for a good boy name,” shared another.
A third replied: “I definitely romanticize all of these cute names, but I have a hard time imagining these cute baby names as an adult in a professional setting!”
Morgan later shared an update on how Harry Potter actress Scarlett Byrne recently decided to name her baby Blossom. So it looks like their predictions may come true! We’ll be sure to keep an eye on the other names on the list…
