If that makes any sense!

Not pregnant, just nosey & sparked by the fact that I know 8 Williams under 4 years! We know quite a few children but these are the only named duplicated.

William x 8
Samuel x 3
Joshua x 3
Wilf x 3
Ethan x 2

Matilda x 3
Elizabeth x 3

Oh and Alice and Grace. 5 years ago I wondered if little girls were being called anything else.

baies74 Wed 22-Jan-14 19:34:40

Freya/Reya/Maya/Priya

Charles/Charlotte (I know at least a dozen Charlies, of both sexes).

Amelia/Emilia/Millie/Mia/Ellie

Hattie/Matty/Beattie

Nathan/Ethan

Appreciate they're all different names but they all sound the same, and I know at least two of each. I also know several Harrys and Henrys and five Arthurs.

There are very few names of children that I don't know multiples of but the names most frequently duplicated in my circles for girls appear to be Matilda, Florence, Emilia and Francesca (I know at least 4 or 5 of each). There are way too many other duplicates to mention, (some are quite uncommon which would out me). For boys, I can only think of one or two names which aren't duplicated (and they are very unusual names!)

Everyone here is called Alex or Emily.

Either that or they have a name that doesn't make it into the top 1000 (Foxglove, anybody?)
