I never would have guessed Oliver or Alfie, but the other names are very common, at least in the US. In fact I've never met anyone named Alfie in my life.

Interesting.

Among all these options, I'd say only Daniel, Carlos (Charlie) and Jessica are common here in Brazil. Joshua would be Josué but it's not very common specially in the last generations. Same for Thomas (Tomás), Grace (Graça) and Amelia.
I know some young girls who were named Sofia lately. Isabela and Julia are also very 'famous' lately. For boys, Vitor, Gustavo, and Leonardo.

As you may know some Brazilians like to name their children after someone famous. In 1994 many babies were named Romário, Bebeto and Tafarel (OMG!). We also have many Ronaldos, of course.
