English baby names: In modern times in the English-speaking world there has been a strong trend towards using surnames as given names, for example Beverley, Cameron, Bradley and Ryan. The surnames themselves come from a variety of sources. There are also many vocabulary words (such as Jade, Summer and Hope in English) which are used as given names.The stock of first names is further increased by variants of traditional names (such as Alicia from Alice, Krystle from Crystal), independent short forms of traditional names (such as Bill from William, Jessie from Jessica), and made-up names (such as Lavone and Jolene). There are also many feminine forms of masculine names, for example Jane from John, Roberta from Robert, Nicole from Nicholas. Interestingly this trend does not seem to happen the other way around.
