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

These are all the girls’ names that are in the English and Welsh top 1000 for 2016 but *not* in the United States!  I made this list by comparing Office of National Statistics data against the Social Security Administration‘s list of most popular baby names.  I’ve also made a list of boys’ names popular in England and Wales but not in the U.S. and and list of boys’ names that are currently popular in the U.S. but not in England and Wales.

You probably noticed a lot of “double-barrel” baby names in here.  While there are Americans with hyphenated first names, the Social Security Administration doesn’t acknowledge their spellings as distinct names.  The U.K. does.  So, Amelia-Rose is officially Ameliarose in America and Amelia-Rose in Britain.

Thoughts?  Let me know in the comments!
