When discussing “English” here, we are actually referring to British English versus English spoken in America. British English, though a sister to American English, is spoken in the United Kingdom and around the British Isles. While the majority of the two languages are highly similar, British English does contain unique words, pronunciations and names carried over from Olde English, the forefather to both British and American English. Thus, when selecting a British English baby name be sure to research the meaning and practice pronouncing it to insure the name is a good fit for your little one. Baby Name World is a great place to start and an excellent resource for British English baby names and meanings.
