Girls’ Names in the U.S. Top 1000 that Aren’t in the English/Welsh Top 1000

Finally, the names that are currently popular for baby girls in the U.S. but not in England and Wales! A few of the names here are in the top 1000 for British boys (unisex and gender-bending names are more American phenomenons). 

To make this list, I compared the 2016 U.S. top 1000 against the top 1000 names in England and Wales for the same year. American data comes from the Social Security Administration; English and Welsh data comes from the Office of National Statistics. I’ve also made a list of girls’ names in the E/W top 1000 that aren’t in the U.S. and comparable boys’ lists.

      1. Thanks for the link. I will look at that. I look forward to seeing a list of Italian names. Selfish reasons, I am Italian background and I am writing a book, so am trying to find “good” Italian names that people would know and like. So… if it is on your “to do list,” I’ll be watching. Also, anything Italian is popular right now. 🙂
