First, please note that this data is not every birth record in England – it’s 22 million records, transcribed by the volunteer UK BMD project. But it’s a big enough sample to show trends clearly.
The data derives from 22 million birth records transcribed by the volunteer UK Local BMD project, and includes 143,259 unique names over 177 years, over seven geographically diverse counties. The chart for each name shows the percentage of all transcribed records in which it appears. Data compiled by Dr Stephen Bush and Professor Tom Freeman of the University of Edinburgh.
