These Baby Names Are Going Extinct- Is Yours One Of Them?

With new popular names like Baxter, Emilia, Felicity and Harper, classic names are being replaced with names that have varied spellings and what some may believe to be strange pronunciations.

As sad as it is to see them go, this generation of parents are putting aside the once popular name of Diane, Roy and Wendy in favor of Persephone, Winne and Thea.

What do you think? Have you adopted the new names of 2017 or do you prefer classics from the 1980's?
