What is in fashion will inevitably go out of fashion, but just as likely is that it will later come back into fashion. The same goes with names, and now that it’s been about 4 decades, the 1980’s are back. The names that were popular back then are being brought back. These include Blane, Ferris, Laurel, Chrissy, Penny, and Robin.
