One if by land, two if by sea ... and three if by delivery ward?
An online baby name tracker says British is back, thanks not to loyalist swine but "a new wave of Anglophilia," said BabyNames founder Jennifer Moss in a release.
Top U.S. names like Charlotte, Liam and Olivia have long been English standbys, and Moss speculates that we have pop culture heavyweights like "Harry Potter," "Downton Abbey" and "Doctor Who" to blame for Paul Revere’s posthumous writhe.
But BabyNames found that Lincoln — which works for both boys and girls — is the fastest-rising name this year, honoring if not Americana, at least American-made automobiles. Jackson is also the 10th most popular boys name.
Top boys names are: 1. Liam, 2. Noah, 3. Oliver, 4. Aiden, 5. Asher, 6. Owen, 7. Benjamin, 8. Declan, 9. Henry and 10. Jackson.
And for the fairer sex: 1. Charlotte, 2. Amelia, 3. Olivia, 4. Ava, 5. Aria, 6. Violet, 7. Sophia, 8. Scarlett, 9. Audrey and 10. Emma.
George is on the rise in England with the birth of the royal baby, but that’s one trend that’s not crossing the pond, Moss said.
"Right now there are so many varied associations, good and bad, that it probably won’t be popular anytime soon."
