Upper Class Rich Names
I recently saw a post asking of a name seemed upper class while many felt that it did, it seemed the exact opposite to me. So now I'm curious as to what other people see as upper class or rich names. What names do you consider as upper class or have a wealthy vibe to them? What are the names of the wealthy people you know? Any names that just seem well to do?
Some of these names that I have associated these as 'upper class' are 'snooty' and are becoming more popular, meaning they'll no longer associate as such.
I think there's a lot of difference between US/UK on this. I often see Freya, Imogen and Harriet suggested as 'upper class' names on here but I certainly don't think they are. Here are some that I wouldn't be surprised to see in the latest birth announcements in the Torygraph:
*Sort of. Becoming more commonplace now.
Oh I should add that the people that I know that would be considered wealthy, or above upper class, have very normal names oddly enough. Those names are Brent, Scott, Amanda, Ian, Bertie, Wayne, Sarah, Gabrielle (the only one that seems to fit 'upper class' in my eyes), Grace. It seems those that I know that are middle class tend to try to have the snooty high end names. Lol. Like Carter, Magnus and Olivia.
I have no idea what constitutes a "rich" name, but here are the names of some people I know who were born into wealth.
Lolita (her father is a mega-celebrity)
(I went to school with a LOT of rich kids.)
Having grandparents who live in one of the fanciest upper class cities in Denmark where all the rich people come to holiday in the summer (but turns plain as a pikestaff in winter time), I would say that these names are very commonly heard among the upper class (totally copy-pasted this from my post in the boys thread, but yeah):
I attended a prep school with many wealthy, well-connected students. The names tended to be either classics or family names. There were very few trendy names or unique spellings. I agree with a previous poster in that most of the truly wealthy people have "normal" classic names (with the exception of vintage family names), while its the more middle class/upper middle class individuals I know that have the "snotty" names
Popular names of students were (now in their 20s/30s):
