For if the characters on these comedies and dramas have good names, some of the actors—particularly the women—have fantastic ones, and to me at least, they seem quintessentially British. Here are some of the best I’ve spotted. Cascade Brown is most known for her leading role in the TV show The Bill, followed...

    By Angela Mastrodonato of Upswing Baby Names The Victorian nickname trend that’s hot in the U.K. is getting attention in the U.S.—for girls. The Brits have embraced this genre on both sexes.

    When Henry was chosen as the #1 favorite boy’s name on the collective 5-star lists of the nameberry community, I was somewhat surprised and yet somewhat not.  Because in many ways Henry is the perfect boy’s name—as classic and historic as James and John and William –yet with a quirkier edge that makes it seem modern, and even hip.
