I was just looking at this list (granted the list is 2008, I dont think they are putting out stats as of 2009) http://www.babynamestats.com/popular_names_england_wales_2008.html
Anyway, Im really suprised that [name]Madeline[/name]/[name]Madelyn[/name] isnt being used in the UK!! When I look at the names on the UK list, [name]Madeline[/name] just seems to fit with the style of those names. Im just really suprised. Isnt [name]Madeline[/name] considered somewhat of a classic? Is it just me, or does it seem that the US seems to copy some of the trends of the Uk? [name]Chloe[/name], [name]Lily[/name], etc…werent they first popular in the Uk? I thought all this time that [name]Madelyn[/name] was popular in the Uk, and maybe perhaps it is, maybe the true number isnt shown because of all the varied spellings? Could this be? [name]Madeline[/name] is definitely used in the US (around 13k if you add up the varied spellings). Thoughts nameberries? Any input from nameberries in the UK?
