I feel like this site is a different story, because: a. we’re all name nerds & think of more interesting names than the average [name_m]Joe[/name_m]. & b. we come from all different places in the world. That being said, on this site, I see a ton of:

Margot

Ophelia

Florence

Lilia (not even on the top 1000 in the U.S, though!

Maeve

Rose

Violet

I live in the midwest U.S, & in real life I hear a lot of:

Avery

Alice

Adelyn

Evelyn

Harper

Isla

Nora

I kind of hear a lot of [name_f]Margot[/name_f] too in real life, actually. But basically everyone is an [name_f]Adelyn[/name_f].

I’m in the [name_u]South[/name_u]-ish right now. There is a big difference between names I hear in my community vs. names that people I went to high school are using (since we’re all pretty young and they tend to go for more creative names, I will say that almost everyone who I went to hs with that is now having kids has had a boy)

[name_u]Collins[/name_u]
[name_f]Olivia[/name_f]
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
[name_f]Eloise[/name_f]
[name_f]Jade[/name_f]
[name_f]Stella[/name_f]
[name_u]Everly[/name_u]
[name_f]Emma[/name_f]/Emerson/Emily/Emmie

I know this is in the girls forum but I’ll put boys as well:
[name_m]Kayson[/name_m]
[name_m]Colton[/name_m]
[name_u]Levi[/name_u]
[name_u]Liam[/name_u]
[name_u]Logan[/name_u]
[name_u]Theo[/name_u]/Leo

Looking through my friends’ kids’ names, there are surprisingly few repeats. But the repeats I’ve seen are [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] (and variants), [name_f]Amelia[/name_f], [name_u]Oliver[/name_u], [name_f]Grace[/name_f], [name_f]Lily[/name_f], and [name_u]Collins[/name_u] (which I personally hate, so I was shocked to see it used more than once).

There are some trends I’ve also seen. Lots of Ev-, [name_f]El[/name_f]-, [name_m]Ad[/name_m]-, and [name_m]Al[/name_m]- beginnings to girl names. Also noticing -ly endings. Boy names seem more standard and old school than girl names. Some “fun” spellings, but less than we saw in the early 2000s.

Seeing a decent bit of last name as first name trend. Specifically some mothers using a version of their maiden names as their kid’s first name. We have a first name last name, so I’m avoiding that trend myself. Too likely to get people confused when reading the kids’ names in a class list.
