Same exercise like yesterday but about the most popular female names in Europe. As you can see, the male and female name patterns don’t necessarily overlap. I’m very surprised by the abundance of Marias in Scandinavia, for some reason I always thought all women there were named Agnetha Fältskog. Another prejudiced fantasy down the drain! France, Luxembourg and Norway should really enter an alliance – both their most popular female and male names match. Germany was the biggest surprise, instead of Gertrude, we have an epidemic of Mias. I think those guys have a secret Latin fetish. Go figure!
Data is data and it’s very hard to argue with it, so we haven’t much choice here.
