    I wouldn't have known that myself of course. :)

    I would assume that a lot of them had the same or similar names to white people - this can help them when it comes to getting on in life.

    More to the point, do Asian names become old-fashioned...

    Also, there was one other George in Junior school, but I was the only one at Comprehensive school.
  11. Re: Fashionable names of people mostly in the 1970s and 1980s
