Okay, I’ll play. I’ve never been to the UK, so I don’t have the bias of the previous posters. lol
I just looked up the 50 most common names for girls and boys in Great Britain in 2014.
A lot of the popular names on the girls list are the same as the popular names here, but the following are names I never see here:
Isla (I’ve never even heard that name before), Poppy, Evie (I know 1 Eva, but no Evies), Freya, Nur
Then there are other names on the list that we obviously have heard before, and may even know 1 or 2 of them, but they are not common, or they are only common among older generations:
Alice, Lucy (incidently, the only Lucy I know is British), Daisy (I honestly think of this a dog’s name), Elsie (this is a cow’s name), Millie, Florence
I have never heard of Alfie or Finley.
But most of the names on the boys list I’ve heard before, or know an American with that name, but they are generally “old people names.” For example, Harry, George, Henry, Max, Archie and Oscar (and I have a hard time saying Oscar without following it with “the grouch”).
Clearly, royalty plays a factor in some of these. Interesting discussion.
