I live in a very traditional Irish working class Catholic neighborhood, a lot of younger kids named Irish names/saints names typically. I also work in the preschool in neighborhood so I deal with kids all day.

I live in a secluded little valley in a small town where 80% of the adult population doesn't have a college degree. Where I go to school is technically a small city, but it still feels very small town. There's several medium-ish cities nearby, but a lot of the area is rural. I'm talking acres of property with cows and horses. The majority of kids here are given trendy names. A nice sampler:
It was refreshing to meet a Lydia, and to hear of a Harriet.
I live in an expensive yupstery part of Los Angeles. Everyone, to a hilariously uniform degree, works in the business side of the entertainment industry, medicine or law. I know, like, one guy who's a PR exec and that's it.
The entertainment people for the most part give their children very standard names-- Mason, Ava, Kate. I know a few entertainment kids named Nadia, Daisy, Eloise, Dashiell and Leo, but it's uncommon to deviate much from top 20 names. After all, they all have business degrees only and are very conscious of branding and trends.
The professional types are the classic yupsters, very concerned about being the right kind of different and showing off their expensive educations if at all possible. Rosalie, Cassia, Amelie, Adeline, Cora, Sylvia, and Jessamine for girls; Dashiell (another one), Simon, Antoine, Radley, Nixon (!), Makaio, Xander, Arlo and Phineas for boys.
We've just bought a house in the San Fernando Valley, which is the sine qua non of the middle class suburb (even though its so pricy now it's not true). We'll be living with a large enclave of Orthodox Jews, a good number of Middle Eastern people (Armenians and Persians mainly), Hispanic people and a dash of everyone else. There are lots more kids there than in our current hood so we'll see.
I live in an artsy, hipster type town with a big music scene. It's full of college students and yupster 30-somethings. But it is also in the South, so 10 or so miles outside of town becomes a little... rough, for lack of a better word. The names we're used to hearing in our specific neighborhood are definitely hipster-y... Wren, Grey, Tallulah, Wylie, Jack, lots of Sophia's and Abigail's, Hazel, Jackson, Iris, Mavis, etc.
My hometown though is very rural, very country, lots of camouflage, etc. and the names I hear there are more like Aiden, Cayden, Jaden, Layla, Mia, Mya, Kylie, Riley, Kaylee, Hunter... I keep up with a few dozen people from high school and their kids are Khloe, Chandler, Zoe, Hadley, another Chloe, Gabriella, Nolan, Rylan, 2 Aiden's, Corbin, and Hailey.
We moved to East London a few months ago (a fairly affluent suburb, pretty but nothing very remarkable about it otherwise), and the name I hear constantly is Rory! We must be in a pocket of popularity for it. With girls, Ellie/Ella/Bella or Grace seem to be the only names used here! My partner works at an after-school club, so we get a good sampler, but he's not the best at remembering names so he tends to think of all the girls as 'Ella' because it's so ubiquitous. Though he did say that there was a Livia (NOT Olivia), which is unexpected. Other than Rory, the boys' names are very predictable, pretty much following national statistics (so many Olivers!). There's also a relatively high number of unusual non-English names, as it is quite multicultural here. When we used to live in North London (very artsy, with some very affluent areas nearby), the names we heard were much more interesting: Estelle, lots of Wilfreds, Henrys and Arthurs, Claudette, Emmeline, Albert, Josiah, Gloria.
I live in North-West/Central London, in a wealthy area with lots of artists, journalists, actors and quite a few celebs. It's pretty lefty, people with money who don't want to live in posh areas. The interesting thing is that I live right by the canal where there are boathomes, and they are pretty different from the rest.
Girl names: Imogen, Poppy, Daisy, Violet, Bonnie, Felicity, Sage, India, Matilda, Cecily, Elodie, Delphine, Allegra, Isabel, Florence, Beatrice
Boy names: Harry, Alfie, Hugo, Hudson, Neville, Woodrow, Lester, Gilbert, Victor, Atticus, Felix, Cassian, Reuben, Ivo, Alexander, Noah
I have no idea what people are currently calling their kids where I live (and wouldn't know how to find out x_x) so I'll give you a sample of the names from the 80's/90's. I live in an extreme suburb of Liverpool bounded by the sea on one side and farmland and woodland on the other three. It's referred to officially as a 'village' but 'small country town' is what North West in Bloom decided to call us ;) There is a resident naughty peacock who roams around digging up peoples bulbs and we have a village show in the summer where people enter home made jams etc. Parts of the village were built in the 1880's, parts in the 1930's but most in the 1960/80's. I'd say the majority of the people who live here are middle class and my parent's friends were other police officers, business owners, nurses, doctors and teachers.
This is what they named their kids:
Alison, Alexandra, Susannah, Eleanor, Kelly, Lindsay, Gabrielle, Rebecca, Karen, Laura, Samantha, Jennifer, Megan.
James, Michael, Peter, Christopher, Mark, Matthew, Jonathan.
I live in the 10th largest city in Denmark. In general the population is quite creative and especially music is very, very important here, since the biggest music festival in northern Europe is held here every year. That affects the baby naming quite a lot actually, and there's a lot of names inspired by musical legends. Generally most names are quite adventurous, but I will say that there's a few that just keep popping up, such as Oliver, Lucas, Emma and Anna.
I live in a small semi-affluent town outside London which is becoming more and more multi-cultural with the influx of Eastern European immigrants moving into the town. Here are some of the names of the child that live in this town.
Jakub 'Kuba' I know ten Polish children with this name
I live in a middle-class suburb of a western town of about 7,000 people.
Girl names I've heard: Emma, Olivia, Brinley, Briklyn (seriously. They called her "Bricky" for short), Icelyn (call her "Icy"), Morgan, Sylvie, Rachel.
Boys names I've heard: Nick, Blaine, McCoy, Noah, Quentin, Brayden, Tayden, Tytan, Taggart, Tayton, etc.
People living here seem to really like the mish-mash syllable names.
Names i hear from Facebook friends' (most of which grew up around here and have moved away): Olivia, Presley, Payton (every spelling imaginable of this name), Paisley (also every spelling imaginable), Savannah, Leola, Audrey, Gigi, Bentley (one boy and one girl with this name), Ivy, Jaycie, Oliver, Madelyn (several spellings), Sydney...
