Those Europeans... they're so cool. Their movie endings are dark and weird, they give new moms a million months maternity leave, and they call night clubs "discos." What's not to love about the Euro way of life? Perhaps I should ask Theresa May... but in the meantime, let's talk baby names. Specifically, let's take a look at the top baby names in Europe, so that we may emulate those cool Europeans and their super cool babies.
So what are they? Fromage, Kilometer, Aluminium, and Leidensplein? Shockingly, no! (Though if the Beckhams reproduce again, I would not be surprised to hear of an Aluminium Marie.) Actually, many of the names are similar to what's popular in the states. Sofia and Jackson appear to be beloved by the Western world in general. Perhaps this can be chucked up to globalization? Or Disney Princesses? Or Bradley Cooper playing a sexy alcoholic? Regardless, I’m going to hold out hope that some of the more unique and interesting European names make a comeback. The world can always use more Glenervas, I think. Anyway, without further ado, here are some of the most popular baby names in countries where it’s perfectly acceptable to make dinner plans for 10 p.m.
