The fact that parents in the US are free to give a child almost any name (except offensive). And yet so many in this country problems with spelling. It turns out that Rachel and Rachael – different female American names. These errors artificially increase the list.

The Top 3 American names for 2013: Mary, Patricia and Linda. The first name is popular in power the Christian roots of American settlers, there are also derivatives Maria, Miriam, and Meriem. Patricia – a name popular with the Irish, and as Irish immigrants in the United States very much, and girls are often so-called. The popularity of the name Linda is difficult to judge, maybe it's all in euphony. It is in the top for a few years, and the situation is unlikely to change.

beautiful feminine names

Very often used the names of flowers, e.g. Daisy (Daisy) Daisy means (that name was the heroine of ‘the Great Gatsby”). Another example – rose. Like Russians, Americans love to adapt male names in the female: and it turned out the name Patricia (after all, Patrick – the patron of Ireland). Sometimes female American names are taken unchanged from the “database” men. So there are girls named Francis or Fred. So our singer Slava and Maxim did not reveal anything new.

Female American names include also a large number of German names (Gretchen, Madeline) and French (Michelle, Genevieve, Antoinette). There are among the Indian names and, although they are found among the white population is not easy: Donoma (the light of the Sun), Hantawyii (true), Ayasha (little one).
