It seems the old names, good solid BRITISH names, are in danger of becoming extinct. Such as  'Clive' ... also Sharon and Tracy and even Wayne - you couldn't move for Waynes and Traceys at one time. I suppose these names will come back into fashion again soon... or not?

Here's the list of highly endangered names:-

Angela
Bertram
Beverley
Cecil
Carol
Clarence
Clive
Cyril
Debra
Diane
Donna
Dean 
Doris 
Dennis
Derek
Duncan
Elaine
Ernest 
Geoffrey
Horace
Joanne
Leonard
Maureen
Malcolm 
Nigel
Neville 
Paula
Roy
Sally
Sandra
Sharon
Sheila
Tracey
Wendy
Yvonne
Wayne




Any other names you feel are 'threatened' or perhaps to the contrary where you're surprised by their upsurge in recent years?

That got me looking for my mum's name. This is what I found -

Last Year in the Top 1000: 2006 (latest year for which we have data)
Average Age: 88.61
Highest Percentage: 0.337% in 1919
Best Rank: #74 (in 1919)

Good site this one for over a hundred years up to 2006, tap your name choice in on right hand side corner ...
