Hmm... yesterday I would have said yes - thinking of inner city Liverpool and the popular/chav choices people would be most likely to use there - but my friend showed me a class list of her mums year six class (10-11) last night and I was really surprised by their names (e.g Cormac, Mary). The school is in the town next door and it's known for being a fairly affluent area.
On a really small scale level, my naming style probably wouldn't be too out there for my village or the towns north of me but the further south down the branch line I went the more eyebrows it would raise~Boys~

I don't countries have a single naming style. If the US, for example, the naming style in New York is different from the naming style in Georgia or Mississippi which is different from the naming style in Iowa or Colorado which is different than the naming style in Arizonia or California.
I also think naming styles vary within those regions as well.I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

I've always thought my naming style would fit in better in Europe, maybe Germany. I look at the top lists over there and in Scandinavia and think that Americans could take some lessons.Mom to Sylvia Caron (May '09) and Linus Roman (born 08.21.13)Other favorites:
