(WKBW) Still haven't found the right name for your bun in the oven? Why not skip some of the trendy, popular names and go for a unique one. Here are some of the top vintage names that you don't hear anymore from the MommieNoire website.

Anita: The name was popular in the late 1950's. It has seen a drop off in the last 30 years.

Louise: Lots of little girls were named Louise in the early 1900's, but the name has dropped steadily since.

Georgia: It's a favorite from the late 19th century through the 1940's, and it's seeing a resurgence in the last 20 years.

Joyce: It means merry or joyous. In the1940's, it was in the top 20 names for girls.

Roseanne: It means gracious rose. It saw a big boom in 1999 and has disappeared since then.

Hattie: This name was popular from 1880 to 1913. It was in the top 100 for girl's names then and now it's in the top one-thousand.

Tomorrow morning we will share some vintage boy names. With Family Time, I'm Joanna Pasceri.
