12 female English names that are no longer popular in Ghana

Some names used to be the most popular in the 80s and 90s, but they are barely heard of these days. Below are twelve names that have become unpopular in Ghana.

1. Agatha.

If you were in the 80s or 90s, you would definitely remember this name. It was the nickname for lollipops back then too.

2. Roberta.

The female version of the name Robert. When was the last time you heard this name? It's completely disappeared!

3. Philomena.

Apart from the being the name of Tic Tac's most popular song in the 90s, do you remember hearing this name in recent years? Nope!

4. Doris.

It is probably safe to say this name no longer exists in Ghana.

5. Martha.

This name was quite popular in the 90s. There is very little mention of it these days.

6. Florence.

A beautiful city in Italy, but sadly an almost extinct name in Ghana. There must have at least student named Florence in your school if you were born in the 80s or 90s.

There is nothing more to say. The name is extinct, gone. Period.

9. Vida.

This name is so old. So So old. Who still bears this name?

10. Patricia.

Aunty Pat. You had an Aunty Pat. You cannot say you never did. Everyone has or had an Aunty Pat.

11. Gloria.

Another beautiful old name. Sadly it has become quite unpopular.

12. Comfort.

Good old Comfort. This name was so popular in the 90s. One in every four women was named Comfort.
