Christian Name Commonality

By standardising the spelling and abbreviations, it is possible to determine the number of instances of occurence of christian names - taking the only the first name when an individual has multiple christian names.

Dividing by the number of individuals of the same gender allows a separate comparison of the commonality of male and female names.

Two types of analysis have been conducted:

  1. Census records
    These give the total Glanville population, containing all males named in say, the previous 80 or so years, plus wifes whose names were given at their own birth by non-Glanville parents.
    Thus this answers the question "What names did living Glanvilles have at that time?"
  2. Birth records
    These give only the names given by Glanville parents within the timeframe of the analysis
    Thus this answers the question "What names were given to Glanville children at that time?"
  3. Electoral Roll & Telephone Directory
    As this excludes young people it only partially answers the question "What names did living Glanvilles have at that time?".
    Being conducted in recent years it is assumed spelling is deliberate and names frequencies are "watered down" by virtue of deliberate spelling variants such as William, Will, Billy, Willie, Bill

Top 10 male names found in 1999 Top 10 female names found in 1999

184 different male names were found, with 312 female names. These numbers are less certain than earlier as unisex names are starting to appear (e.g. Terry, Jay, Dee, Toni), immigrant names of uncertain gender, as well as deliberate (assumed deliberate from the fact that literacy is higher than in the 1800s) spelling variations that ought not to be normalised (e.g. Brigit, Brigitte, Bridget). Additionally the source for this was not a census but a combination of Electorall Roll and Telephone Directory - and as such people had a different approach to the formality on how they wish to appear (e.g. Natasha, Tasha, Tash; Reginald, Reg, Reggie).

73 of the mens names were found only once - 40% of their names
154 of the womans names were found only once - 49% of their names

1 Given the elimination of girls under 16, and Glanville-born women married to other men, you're left mostly with woman married to Glanville men - and thus one might use this table to support a hypothesis that prior to 1999 Glanville men had a genetic predisposition to marry woman named Margaret ! ! !
