The most popular girl baby names in the world's major cities

It's easy to associate names with certain places.

For New York, you might think of a little girl called Madison or for London you might think Elizabeth or even Kate or Pippa.

Now baby-naming site Nameberry has revealed the biggest baby names in some of the major cities across the English-speaking world.

The study saw the website's team analyse page views for names on their site by users in seven different cities; London, New York, Sydney, Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles and Dallas.

While we tend to know of the top baby names by country thanks to censuses, this research is a first in that it offers insight into specific areas within countries.

Some names, like Cora, pop up time and again in the lists for different cities, suggesting that city-dwellers share tastes.

Interestingly, Maeve appears in the top five for London parents, a possible reflection of the Irish ex-pat population in the British capital.
