Dorothy, are you too outdated?

Posted on: January 15, 2012

Dear Dorothy,

With a stream of old fashioned named coming back, yours has yet to cross the list. Dorothy, I ask you, is your name lost forever? Much like Clarence, you’ve been deemed an “old” person’s name. I fear the babies born today will never grow old, thus we must give them a cutesy name to make them sound born in this era. I apologize for the sarcasm, but with lists compiled of older names, yours has never shown. Why? Dottie? Thea? Dora? You have many wonderful nicknames that serve it’s purpose and fit in well with the nicknames of today. With that said, Dorothy, will you ever come back?

Yours truly,
BNGuru Sasha

I really like the name Dorothy – she can totally work these days. I’ve seen a good handful of people simply using her short form of Dolly, a name that sits well with choices such as Lily and Rosie.
