Quick Little Challenge

Before the new US data comes this weekend, I thought it might be a fun challenge to go through the 2018 Top 1k (US or UK or wherever you’re from) and narrow it down to the 18 boy names and 18 girl names you love most from the list! We are all bored in quarantine anyway, right? I’m very interested to see which names everyone would choose. :smiley:
