    I really thought that Sakura would have been the most popular in Japan. Or something with Natsu (like Natsume or Natsuki. Or just Natsu for the fans out there who know who I’m talking about😉)

    I would definitely not say "Lutchia" in Swedish for "Lucia", it's just an s sound. The way you said it sounds more like Italian ;)

    I'm from South Africa and Junior is not a typical/comman name. It all depends on what province you're in and what the traditional language is there.

  • Naomi B
    Naomi B 9 days ago

    Japanese names don’t have meaning like our European names have, the meaning depends and changes depending on the kanji (character) it is spelled with. My Name (Naomi) could mean beautiful sea or serious/true woman, and about 20 more meanings. There is a list of about 850 kanji that may be used for names with different sounds and meanings, additionally many of these have archaic versions which can be used... it’s called 人名用漢字 (jinmeiyou kanji), basically as long as the sound of the kanji fits the name, parents can build the meaning of their children’s name. Thus not only the name itself is a topic of discussion but also the kanji spelling :) it’s a really interesting topic,!!

  • Brittany 2H
    Brittany 2H 2 months ago

    Liam has been my top boys name list for basically my entire life. There were almost no Liam's when I was a child and growing up in the 90s as Brittany I was always one of many as it was the top girls name the year I was born. I always swore I would never "Brittany" my child because I hated having to go by my last name or forever be Brittany h. Fast forward to this year and we are expecting our first child and what is top of the boy's name list?! Liam! Drat! Good thing baby is a girl, that one would have been hard to part with

    Hi SJ. Thank you for great content as always. I love your channel so much!! I´m swedish and I actually have a real big language-complex because i truly think all words and names sounds so much more beautiful in english than it does in swedish. Here in Sweden we have these hard vocal-sounds, for example the letters O, U and Y (and also sometimes the letters Å, Ä, Ö) is so much more harsh and more "stubby" sounding in comparison to the more rounder vocal sound you guys have in english!! Even though both me and my husband are Swedish we actually gave our children names that are really similar in both english and swedish. Julian and Ellie :-). But I have a sister who has two boys with two really swedish names: Valter and Sixten.

      and just for an update, the most common names in iceland the past year has been Aron for boys and Embla and Hekla for girls, which I love. Hekla is an old name, and actually the name of an active volcano here in iceland. So very strong and powerful.

    Really a mix of traditional and international and some newer Finnish names.

  • Socially Awkward Fangurrl

    In Australia, I would say it’s fair to say Oliver as a top name, but I personally would go towards more of the names Ryan, Jacob and Jayden for boys, I have met two Charlottes and Two Oliver’s, but for a girl, I would say, more towards the names, Lily, Ella, Bailey (that would actually be gender neutral cos I’ve met multiple baileys of both genders) and probably Maddison or a name on the lines towards Maddison.
    But in the end, I do have to take into consideration of when the names were or are popular, but yeah, I think that’s pretty accurate.
    But,....for New Zealand, I have not met anyone, with any of those names in New Zealand. Typically in NZ or the areas I’ve been, they have more traditional names of there culture, and not really the names you said, but in the end, I will say again, it really does depend on the year and so on.

    In no way was I saying or disagree that the names on the list weren’t popular or hating on what you said, I will say again, I do believe it is because of the years and such. Love your videos btw
