If you’re looking for a baby name that’s a little more upmarket this year, Tatler has done the research for you. 

The high-end magazine has released a list of 26 girls’ names and 26 boys’ names, which they believe should be made popular again.

“We’ve picked out some of the poshest names known to man,” the article on their website states

“These are the real deal. Some are even centuries old. Let’s make them popular again!”
