Names in the Scottish Top 100 have a lot of overlap with the US Top 100. Other top-ranking names include Amelia and Ava, Oliver and James.

It’s not all similarities, though. Angus, Alfie, Orla, and Imogen are all among Scotland’s top names, but did not make it into the most recent US Top 1000.

Quintessentially Scottish names make the list of most popular names in Scotland as well, such as Eilidh, the Gaelic variation of Helen. As well as Harris, other Scottish island names like Arran and Iona are both patriotic and full of modern style.

Other unique names that rank among Scotland’s Top 100 include Alba, Niamh, and Mirren for girls, and Hamish, Fraser, and Innes for boys.
