Jill and [name_f]Carol[/name_f](e) come to mind first

I like [name_f]Belinda[/name_f], [name_f]Susan[/name_f] and [name_f]Gladys[/name_f] which I guess are quite dated but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t use them!

I am virtually certain that [name_f]Irene[/name_f] will make a comeback pretty soon. I have loved [name_f]Irene[/name_f] forever, so I have definitely noticed people mentioning it more.

My dated loves are [name_f]Susan[/name_f], [name_f]Frida[/name_f], [name_f]Ruth[/name_f] and [name_f]Irene[/name_f] for girls. I think they will all be considered stylish soon except [name_f]Susan[/name_f]. For boys my whole list is mostly very dated in the US: [name_m]Wilfred[/name_m], [name_m]Bruce[/name_m], [name_m]Ross[/name_m], [name_u]Timothy[/name_u], [name_m]Clarence[/name_m].

Jennifer

[name_f]Susannah[/name_f] (and all variations of [name_f]Susan[/name_f])
[name_f]Megan[/name_f]
[name_u]Allison[/name_u]

Pamela

It reminds me of [name_f]Pandora[/name_f] and [name_f]Paloma[/name_f], but unfortunately still very much a mum/mom name and not ready for revival.
