    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Katie yet, I've always thought that it's really popular, I know quite a few Katies. Other popular ones are Rebecca, Sarah, Amy, Louise, Laura...

    it depends which generation we're talking about.

    For little kids (say aged 0-12), Ella, Ellie, Olivia, Chloe are pretty common. Also Nevaeh for some stupid reason.

    for my generation (20s to 30s) Sarah/Sara, Laura, Louise, Rebecca, Emma, Catherine are pretty common

    for elderly people, I dunno.....old lady names : Ann/Anne, Margaret, Jean, Betty


    it's a bit broad to ask which female names are common in the UK because every generation has their own ideas about names.

    I know that in my secondary school about 20% of the girls had the middle name "Louise" (including me).
    Maybe it's as popular a first name as a middle? I unno.
