    Dallas has been on the U.S. Top 1000 every single year since 1880 (kind of shocking, I know), so it's very well-established on this side of the ocean, despite being not my style whatsoever. I'm quite sure it's been used in the U.K. over the years, though maybe more sparingly.

    I definitely don't think Bramwell, Denton, Olympia, Perseus, Porter or Tucker are "bizarre," either. The latter two in particular are totally on-trend here in the States.

    Lohan is unfortunate and saddening, but not unexpected, I guess. If people are using Winslet on their kids, it was only a matter of time.

    Drey and Peppa seem like typos.

    Pepsi, Puppy and Vogue are pretty damn weird, yes.

    Or after a certain cartoon pig... *sighs*

    Sorrel, Perseus and Olympia are perfectly legitimate first names. The rest can be chucked.

    I like Sorrel and Bramwell, though I'm not sure if I would actually use them.
    I think unusual is a better word for them. I saw the article, London (on a boy) and Olympia were on the list because they were saying the London Olympics must have influenced the parents.
    Porter, Boden, Lohan, Dallas etc seem to me to be much more in the American naming style which might be why they make the list - they're not bizarre but they're also not typical for the UK.
    I can't believe someone named their child Geordie! Thats like naming them Scouse or Londoner!
    I find Bounty, Luck, Nirvana, Nolly, Paradise, Pepsi, Pinky, Puppy, Reem, Tea, Tiger, Tru and Vogue really strange names. I mean Pepsi?! Reem?! Tea?!

    Reem is probably another transliteration of the Arabic girls' name Rim, which means "white antelope" (according to Behind the Name).

    Tea is the usual spelling of Thea is some European languages.
