Emma and Sophia aren't popular all over the state, but after the international favorites, there are regional differences. Just look it up. Some of the names that you mentioned aren't even trendy here, Henrietta isn't on the charts and Sebastian isn't in the top 100 in Alabama but is #30 in California. Caitlin was big in the US in the '80s and '90s so not really a popular college age name anymore. Whereas most Sebastians haven't made it to college yet. So I guess Oxford isn't a good example.

To me, [US] preppy means northeastern, country-club, pearls/polos/sweaters tied around shoulders. I'm with the pp who said that for girls it's surnames, unisex names or buttoned-up names with boyish nns, while for boys it's just fancy surnames.
Has anyone heard of the blog "My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter?" Most of the names on there I'd consider preppy (in a yupster-bordering-on-hipster way.)Gwen
College student, bookworm, terrible influence.
