A spokesperson said for Bounty said, ‘Classically traditional ‘old lady’ names Cecelia and Cecily are on their way to becoming extinct this year if not revived, along with Sandra, which admittedly not be an obvious one to revive without there being a strong and meaningful family connection to the name.

‘Even with the popularity of the Kardashians today, the name Kourtney is heading for extinction alongside Mimi and Bonny.’
