The most common names vary greatly from time to time; names that 50 years ago were common like Venancio, today they are almost impossible to hear unless we are talking about someone's grandparents. And it seems more unthinkable today that a father would think of calling his son by any of these names 'old-fashioned'.
However, it would be the perfect way for our little one to have a unique and original name, and it would also serve us to render our little one tribute to our ancestors. And to update them a bit instead of calling them ‘old names’, we will use a vocabulary that is more trending like calling them ‘retro names’ or ‘vintage names’.
We leave you the 10 most original and curious grandparent names for children.
Although at the moment the names are chosen according to fashions (famous actors, soccer players), current, regional (Basque names), for their meaning or for their beauty; it has not always been this way. And now is a good time to claim those names that add up tradition and history and bring them out of their lethargy. Here is a sample of our proposal.
- Atilano: Latinization of Attila. Of possible origin Turkish, the name gives us the interpretation of ‘ruler’ or ‘hero’.

- Emeterio: It comes from Latin, derived in turn from the Greek, and its meaning is ‘half beast’. Spread thanks to Saint Emeterio, Christian of the Roman legions.
