To please those who love English and American names, here are the top names for our English-speaking neighbors.
At the top of the prize list of the Régie des Rentes du Québec is William, an English first name. For those who would like to find another English-sounding name, it is possible to find more inspiration among the British, Americans and English Canadians.
As in Quebec, Emma was the most popular female given name in 2015 in the United States. The first name Sophia, however, remains a safe bet in the American charts thanks to the many Sophias who have made headlines in recent years. From comedians to the Walking Dead girl to child stars, the first name Sophia seems to have the wind in its sails among our neighbors to the south.
On the boys' side, Liam is the hottest name in 2015. For his part, Jacob, a Hebrew name that was widely popularized by the Twilight series, was at the top for many years, but he has lost ground in recent years. Jackson, whom Sons of Anarchy fans loved giving their baby, is still in the top 10, but he too has lost a few spots to Ethan andNoah.

English Canada has many common cultural references with Quebec and the choice of first names on both the English and French sides has many similarities. Many English names in Canada are also inspired by their southern neighbors since Emma and Liam are also the most popular there.

In Great Britain, first names are often inspired by different popular references and… the monarchy! There are usually many first names different from those found in Canada and the United States: on the girls' side, Amelia has been in first place since 2013. Among boys, Oliver has been most popular in 2015.

When the two parents do not have the same mother tongue, it is good to think of first names that will be as easy to pronounce for the two distant families. It is also a good idea for those who are considering the possibility of moving to another country for work. If this is your case, it is better to choose a first name that will sound almost the same in both languages. Here are a few that are said in both English and French.
