  • P.S. My sister is in her late 60's, so, yes, it is an old name. On the other hand, many old names come back into fashion.

  • My name is Bridget and everyone calls me "B", and I ove it for a nickname, as far as Barbara, it just doesn't seem like a baby name to me.

  • And it is old-fashioned, but there's nothing wrong with that. I've seen a lot of people naming their babies old-fashioned names lately!
