    This or That: Germany vs. USA (151-200 Girls)

    The 2013 Popularity List from the US vs. one from Germany

    #1-50 is here: http://nameberry.com/nametalk/thread...A-(1-50-Girls)
    #5-100 here: http://nameberry.com/nametalk/thread...(51-100-Girls)
    #101-150 here: http://nameberry.com/nametalk/thread...101-150-Girls)

    "J"s are pronounced like y -> Jana turns into Yana
    "I"s are pronounced like ee - Ida turns into EE-da
    "th"s are pronounced like t -> Katharina turns into Katarina
    "e"s at the end of names are usually not silent -> Charlott (pr.) turns into Charlott-eh (short e)
    Vivienne would be an exception.

    Left is Germany | Right the US

    Daria* vs Angela
    Joline vs Fiona
    Elise vs Daisy
    Helen vs Presley
    Josie/Josy vs Eliza

    *can be quite "funny" since "Die" (she) is sometimes used before female names and has the same pronunciation as Di. So you don't always know if people are saying "Die Lara..." (The Lara runs) or "Dilara..." (Dilara runs).
