      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

    fiffi honeyblossom 6 months ago

    African names tend to have very literal meanings. I had a boy in my class names "lucky seven" because he was the 7th pregnancy , the mother had a few miscarriages. Beauty, lucky, joyful....all popular names. And naming a child after the mother's maiden surname as a first name is popular among black, white and brown Africans. My own son has my maiden name as his first name to honour my father and if I ever have a 3rd son,I'll probably name him after my mother's maiden name.

  • Kate go
    Kate go 7 months ago +1

    I'm from Belgium. We have two main regions; Flanders where they speak Flemish, a Dutch dialect and Wallonia where they speak French. Then there's Brussels where it's mixed but mostly French and there are way more people with international backgrounds there. So the name trends vary due to the language but we do adopt names from the other regions. In Flanders which is where I come from, the most popular names in 2018 were:
    1. Olivia 2. Mila 3. Marie 4. Ella 5. Emma
    1. Arthur 2. Noah 3. Lucas 4. Leon 5. Liam
    I couldn't really find an official source for the other regions. I'm not a mum so I don't really know how to search for it but I know Arabic names like Abdellah, Mohammed, Fatima, Sarah are very popullar and in Wallonia you'll find names like Océanne, Chloé, Léa, Camille, Louis, Hugo, Jules, Théo and so on.
    My name is actually Katoo. Around English speakers, I just use Kate because English speakers really mess up the pronounciation. It's derived from Katarina, just like Katya, Katherine, Kat, Katryn, Kathy, Ekatarina and so on. The usual spelling of my name is Cato but my parents liked it better spelled like Katoo because it's more unique. It's pronounced "Kat-oh".
