What's in a name? Try a British name! Like George, Bobby, Emma, or Harry. Take the old-fashioned route. Arthur, Katherine, Charles, Richard, William. "Hello Carson." "Can I get you anything Lady Edith?" Name your child after your favorite characters. Or take a lesson from the greatest writer himself. Hamlet, Olivia, Ophelia, Horatio, Puck, Demetrius. So, why not choose a British name? They are all the rage! "Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them." William Shakespeare. Some great British names. Edward, this kingly name means "rich guard." Archie, this nickname for Archibald, which means "noble," is very popular in the UK. Robert means "bright fame." Hugh, this name means intellect, perfect for that future bright mind. Alistair feels delightfully upper crust, but has a fierce meaning, "warrior." Piers means "rock." Isla, a top 10 UK name, which means "island." Amelia, current favorite in the UK, meaning "work." Evie, this nickname might be a perfect choice if you love Ava or Eva and want something different. It means "life." Alice means "noble." Beatrix means "blessed." Maisie, nickname for Margaret, that's become a hot name in its own right. Millie is usually short for Mildred or Millicent. Poppy, brings to mind the bright flower. Catriona, a Celtic take on Catherine. It means "pure." For more names, go to parents.com/baby-names
