    International Name Challenge List

    I am working on a fun little project and need to come up with a list of the "historically most common" or "culturally associated" names of various countries and am hoping that you can help! I need one boy and one girl name that when you hear, you automatically think, "they must be from....". For example, for Italy, you might say "Paolo and Giulia". (if you don't have a pair for all of the countries, feel free to skip or come back to later). Would be nice if the girl and boy names sound good together or flowed together.

    1. Italy
    2. France
    3. Germany
    4. England
    5. Scotland
    6. Ireland
    7. Scandanavia
    8. Spain
    9. Russia
    10. Egypt
    11. Morocco
    12. Greece
    13. Canada
    14. Mexico
    15. United States
    16. Australia
    17. Japan
    18. China


    Thanks so much!!
