16 baby names from the Nineties that need to be brought back into fashion

When we were growing up in Ireland in the Nineties, names were a little more predictable.

In fact, in school you were probably surrounded by plenty of boys and girls with the same ones.

Certainly, these days there are waaaaay more options for parents, as well as plenty of choices for the mums and dads who fancy something a little different.

Still, the fact that those more traditional names so prevalent 25 years ago are less widespread now makes them all the more appealing.

And so in honour of the naming trends of the Nineties, we present eight boys' names and eight girls' names that we reckon are in store for a revival.
