What's your favorite nationality for names?
I've been doing a bit of an overhaul on my girls' list lately, and I've really been into these unexpected, quirky international names from all over the world. I've already looked at some Italian, Russian, Dutch, Danish, French, etc. lists, and I have a lovely list going, but I'm still looking, and I was wondering what everyone's favorite nationalities were when it comes to looking for names. I've always been partial to French and Polish names in particular, but I'm trying to branch out.
And while we're at it, feel free to list your favorite international names, too, if you like.

I probably have a little bit of everything on my lists. But if I had to pick favourites...I really like Welsh, Irish and Greek names the most.

Irish, Cornish, Celtic & Welsh for me. They have links to my background so I feel really connected to them.
Some of my favourites:
♂: Neville | Matthew | Ernest | Alfie | Louis | Christopher | Harry | James | Albert | Andrew
♀: Doris | Eleanor | Violet | Lillian | Florence | Martha | Minnie | Agatha | Freya |

Haley, I should look into Welsh names! I have a significant amount of Welsh blood in me, and I'm always wanting to find a Welsh name I can get really excited about, but for some reason, they never seem to excite me enough. I do like Seren, Gwendolen, and Lili (the Welsh spelling of Lily) a fair amount, and I've liked Gwendolen for as long as I can remember, but I don't know. I'll have to look into it.
@mrs_anton_yelchin_1990 - Greek names! I keep meaning to look at them, haha. I already have the very Greek Eleni on my list (and several others with Greek origins, like Catherine). I'm just afraid it's going to be a TON of names, so it'll take a while. But thanks for reminding me.
I've looked through German and Scottish names this morning, and I have Polish, Greek, Hebrew, and Welsh on my list (possibly Czech, too?). Any others I should add?
