    I love all of these retro names. Rowan is beautiful, as is Rose.

    If I had a girl I wanted to name her Hazel. But we had a boy and named him Maddox.

    I’ve always been a fan of Martha because I babysat the most adorable Martha as a teenager.

  23. Alice

    I know it’s kind of timeless, but Henry for a boy.

  24. Siobhán

    Gosh, there are so many! At the moment, I love the name Buddy for a boy and Penny for a girl 🙂

    Virginia… it’s my grandmother’s name and if we have another girl, that’s what we’ll call her.

    Adeline for a girl or Theodore for a boy.

  34. Libby

    Climbing buds is my favorite… it combines a Marimekko feel with a summer afternoon in a hammock. Love.

  35. Emily K

    Gee, if I were expecting I’d be writing these names down, they’re all awesome! 🙂 I’m quite partial to Betty, there’s just ‘something’ about it. I also like(d) Jake, Harry and Charles, but these names are quite common now so slightly losing there appeal to me sadly, still, they’re still great names!

  36. Anna

    My favorite is Lieve, no idea if that’s retro or not. Thanks for this give-away!

  37. Karo

    For a girl: donna or regina
    For a Boy: christopher

  38. Nine|Tree

    I agree with a lot of the commentators that Ruby for a girl is a adorable girls name (in Dutch I will probably turn it into Roeby). For a boy I am thinking of Raf, also a Dutch name (don’t know if it’s really ‘retro’, but still oldfashioned I think).

  39. Katie

    I love these sweet girls’ names:

  40. Stephanie Moon

    My husband and I are expecting our first child this November, and last night, he sheepishly and excitedly told me he had a name if our baby is a boy. He said I couldn’t laugh. “Orville.” Orville Redenbacher? Like the popcorn? I asked. “No. Orville like the Wright Brothers,” he said, smiling and burying his head into the pillow. “We could call him Orvie for short…”

  41. autismvox

    Charlie for a boy (cheating a bit as that is actually my son’s name) and for a girl, Helen.

  42. Victoria

    Ruby is my fave and I have a very cheeky 3 yr old one at home!! And for a boy I really like Oscar. Love the stationery.

  43. flavia

    my favourites names are: amaranta and aureliano, as the protagonist of cien años de soledad, gabriel garcia marquez!

  44. Hilla

    I love Audrey and Isabela…both elegant and regal

  45. keren

    Eva, for my grandmother, Josephine, for Jo in Little Women, and Harper, for Harper Lee.

  46. Anne

    Thanks for the chance, great giveaway! Names: I like Louise, Josephine and Madeleine, among others 🙂

  47. Maaike

    As I’m expecting in August, I will not reveal the retro-name foremost on my mind. 🙂 Second-best: Ethel.

  48. anne

    Edith and George 🙂 wouldn’t those be the cutest twin names??
