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

MerryMarigold Sat 18-Jan-14 19:56:02

Mohammed x tons
Adam x 2
Leo x 2
Oliver x 4
Isabelle/ a x 2
Alfie x 2
Joshua x 2
Molly x 3
Aisha x 2
Jude x 2

They mostly 2's but I could probably wrack my brains and find even more popular ones.

GirlWithTheDirtyShirt Sat 18-Jan-14 19:59:52

Isabel and variants - 863 (approx)
Emily - 72 (approx)
Isla - 4
Matilda - 3
Maya - 3
Ella - 2
Evie - 2

Freddie - 2
William - 7
Joseph - 3
Ethan - 2
Noah - 4
Samuel - 2
Thomas - 4
Jack - 4

I'm exaggerating slightly with the top couple but not much. I can think of 10 Isabel's off the top of my head.

I think some names are regional. I know of no Lily's here in the West Mids but tons up North.

I've lost count of actual numbers as I have gone to many playgroups in the last 5 years but the most frequent names round here are:
Evie/Evelyn (known as Evie)
Isabel/Isobel/Isabelle (think this is more popular than official name stats suggest due to variant spelling).
Lily
Isla
Niamh/Neeve
Mia

Jacob (last 3 baby boys I know were called this)
Finley/Finlay/Finnley

I'm trying to think of the toddlers at DD's groups but, actually, there is only one of every other name!

Yama Sat 18-Jan-14 21:07:05

You guys know a lot of children.

There are two Jamie's in dd's class. That's it.

I think there may be two Lucy's in ds's nursery class but I can't be sure.

I pride myself in taking notice generally but can't compete here clearly.

Isobel. 4967040675373 at last count and that's just in DD1's primary school.

There are 3 classes in each of dd years at school
Dd1 is Ellie there are 5 in her year
(2 in her class also 2 Jamie's and 2 Williams)

Dd2 has a unusual name (after lumbering dd1 with the equivalent of a Sharon/tracey name from the 70's) there are 4 girls in her class with unique unusual names I think they put them together for that reason lol but
She has 3 Finley /Finn in her class (there are also Finns in other classes in her year)
Isabel and it's variants
Daisy/Millie/Evie
Joshua's /Daniel and Jacob feature a lot too

My DD1 has one of these popular names but in her preschool of 80 children she is the only one. At the time I named her we didn't know of any other children with her name but it has since exploded in popularity. We couldn't know that was going to happen.

I have a name that isn't unusual at all but I NEVER meet people with it. EVER!

peppinagiro Mon 20-Jan-14 11:18:19

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!)

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