What do you think of this data? It took me a bit of time to collect it. I notice big trend for Italian names (for both boy and girls) and for gender neutral names for boys, -A names for girls and in general most vintage names like Léandre for boys and Joséphine for boys, Y-s everywhere (Maylone, Lyana)


It’s intriguing to see [name_u]Kayden[/name_u] on the list- it feels so different to the rest!

Thanks for collecting the data! Super interesting. I didn’t know Maé/Mahé was gender neutral, but it seems like both spellings are quite popular!


[name_u]French[/name_u] boys names are definitely my favourites of all, sign me up for any name contains a U, ending in -eo and those that just sound so much softer than their [name_f]English[/name_f] equivalents e.g. [name_m]Louis[/name_m], [name_u]Camille[/name_u], [name_u]Charles[/name_u], Raphaël,…

Ooh, thank you for collecting this!

[name_m]Malo[/name_m] is my absolute favorite boy name that I’d never heard before arriving in [name_u]France[/name_u], and I wish it was more known in the US!
