Boden catalogue names

These are names from the newest [name]Boden[/name] catalogues. I have to say, I particularly think the girls” section is really representative of average British naming, more so certainly than the Telegraph birth announcements. There”s almost exactly the right ratio of classic to popular British to vintage to very unusual/foreign.

Also, some of these names are likely nicknames, e.g. [name]Nicki[/name] would probably be [name]Nicola[/name] or [name]Nicole[/name].

Girls :
Ajanta - apparently Bengali, although the girl isn”t; the name of a famous Buddhist cave.
[name]Anna[/name]
[name]Betty[/name]
[name]Chloe[/name]
[name]Coco[/name]
[name]Eve[/name]
[name]Evie[/name]
[name]Francesca[/name]
[name]Freya[/name]
[name]Grace[/name]
[name]Henri[/name] - probably pronounced [name]Henry[/name] and short for [name]Henrietta[/name].
[name]Hermione[/name]
[name]Imogen[/name]
[name]Inka[/name] - Frisian/Finnish (northern Netherlands, northwest Germany and Finland).
[name]Iona[/name]
[name]Isadora[/name]
[name]Isis[/name]
[name]Jasmine[/name]
[name]Lauren[/name]
[name]Lily[/name]

Rekia - apparently means ”thin line” in Hindi (again, the girl isn”t), although I”m not sure how accurate that is.

[name]Maggie[/name]
[name]Maria[/name]
[name]Simone[/name]
[name]Telma[/name] - I originally guessed that this was an Eastern European variant of [name]Thelma[/name], but apparently it is the feminine contraction of the Spanish/Portuguese Santelmo ([name]St[/name]. [name]Elmo[/name]).
Thais - Greek, ”bandage”.

Any favourites?

[name]Auburn[/name]

I love looking through the catalogues for names as well!

[name]Favorite[/name] girl is [name]Hermione[/name].
[name]Favorite[/name] boy is [name]Mischa[/name] (swoon), followed quickly by [name]Luca[/name].
[name]Favorite[/name] teen is [name]Anthony[/name] or [name]Daniel[/name], I suppose.
[name]Favorite[/name] women’s name is [name]Angela[/name] or [name]Maria[/name].
[name]Favorite[/name] men’s name is [name]Colin[/name], followed by [name]Neil[/name].

My favourites, which I forgot to *, are :

Girls - [name]Isadora[/name], [name]Inka[/name].
Boys - tough! Probably [name]Indy[/name], [name]Luca[/name] and [name]Toby[/name], but I also love the idea of [name]Quint[/name] and Novalis.
Teens - [name]Freddy[/name] from the boys, [name]Bella[/name] from the girls.
Women - [name]Julie[/name], [name]Maria[/name].
Men - [name]Will[/name]. To be honest, I wasn’t so enamoured with this selection!
