Most Popular Names in England
Thu, 08-16-2012 - 11:14am

The figures for the most popular names in England and Wales in 2011 have just been released by the Office for National Statistics, and they contain plenty of surprises and interesting tidbits. For one thing, it seems that despite a lot of cross-pollination, there is still a considerable divide in name popularity across the Atlantic. Just looking at the two top names -- which replaced last year’s Olivia and Oliver -- there is Amelia, which is number 30 in the U.S., and Harry, which is way down at number 709 here (although with all those captivating shots of the ebullient prince as a spectator at the Olympics, this could change).

Interesting lists!  Are any of the names you are considering on the lists?
