American names

The United States is known for its lifestyle and accent. You can, through this list, find many heroic names from the American world. But also first names from different American universes. For example, the American series, Games of Thrones, with the names Sansa, Mélisandre, Jon, Gregor, or the Stranger Things series, with Bob, Terry, Becky or Nancy. There are also inspirations from literary works such as John Steinbeck's "Grapes of Wrath" or Francis Scott Fitzgerald's famous "Gatsby the Magnificent".


Often, American names, according to some parents, are an illusion to wealthy families. But if you want to give an American taste, in your family, you are free to choose.

Did you know that in the United States, unlike France, when a baby is born, parents are required to give two first names?

So, this tendency led parents to opt for short names, to avoid too long name pronunciation.
