Trends come and go, and baby names are not immune to falling victim to that.

Though it might be harder to tell when a baby name is becoming popular, it's much easier to tell when a name isn't popular anymore, or at all.

And when baby names start to get unpopular, they can sadly start to become extinct...

Baby Centre has recently revealed which baby names are becoming endangered, and will be extinct by the end of 2017.

These are the names that haven't been registered on the site at all this year, with a lot of the names coming from the 80s.

So, if you're in the market for a (soon to be) unique baby name, then why not take your pick from some of these?
