Methodology

The surveys for the list "British Royalty Names" were conducted in two stages with a different group of respondents for each stage. The first stage gathered suggestions: we asked people to type in their suggested names for the list. After over 10 weeks of gathering suggestions, we began the second stage which lasted over 7 weeks. The second stage asked what names people liked: we asked a new group of respondants to select names that are a good fit from a list of the gathered suggestions.

The second stage of the survey (asking for likes) was added because it's hard for a single person to come up with many ideas. When asked to type out suggestions, most respondents only suggested a handful of names. Further, it's much easier to express an opinion of a name than use creativity to come up with many ideas. The second stages improves ranking of the less commonly thought of names, and dramatically increases the number of people sharing their input. More respondents means a consensus among thousands of people instead of a list biased by a handful of editors.

For most of our lists, an attempt has been made to remain light on editorializing - some names may only be vaguely related while others may be misconceptions. While names that most users agreed did not fit the list were removed, keep in mind that a name can mean different things to different people. With enough users agreeing, some names remain on the list - even when we can't understand the exact reason users added the name to the list.


Sorting and Filtering

The best names are those that received the most votes overall. For names that are the first to come to mind, we only looked at names people entered in the first stage of the survey where people were asked to enter their suggestions instead of selecting names they liked.

Names in bold have a high number of votes compared to the number of babies born with the name. For that reason, babies were more likely given the name because it fits "British Royalty Names" than because it is a common name.

List Updated

Births for first names are taken from births that occurred in the United States after 1879. From 1880 to 1936, all births may not be included in the original data set. Any totals for last names are the number of people with the last name as of the last US census.
