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

Finally, the names that are currently popular for baby girls in the U.S. but not in England and Wales!  A few of the names here are in the top 1000 for British boys.  Unisex and gender-bending names are more American phenomenons. 

To make this list, I compared the 2016 U.S. top 1000 against the top 1000 names in England and Wales for the same year.  American data comes from the Social Security Administration; English and Welsh data comes from the Office of National Statistics.  I’ve also made a list of girls’ names in the E/W top 1000 that aren’t in the U.S. and comparable boys’ lists.
