    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:
    Haley/Haile/Hailey/Haily/Hayley/ect.
    Brittney/Britney/Brtiney
    Ashlee/Ashley
    Miranda
    Amanda
    Bethany
    Kate
    Katie
    Emily
    Emma
    Hannah
    Sophia
    Riley
    Ryan
    Kiara/Kierra/Kira
    Caitlyn/Kaitlyn/Kaytlyn
    Jordan
    Sierra
    Savannah
    Alex

    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.
