Small World of Baby Names

It’s both fun and enlightening to peek at the popularity lists of other places, to see which baby names have spread virally around the world, and to find unfamiliar gems in other countries’ top spots.  Right now, for example, our #1 name Isabella is also leading in Denmark and Australia; Sophie, as in our #2 name Sophia, reigns in Scotland, Ireland, the Netherlands and New Zealand; Emma, #3 in the U.S., heads the list in France, Belgium and Norway, while our #4 Olivia is #1 in England. For boys, most popular internationally are Jack, Jacob/Jakob, Lucas/Lukas and William.

Here are some less familiar names that could easily apply for their US visas.
