From the U.K. to Germany, parents across the pond have different sets of popular baby names influencing their choices. Still, there are many overlaps with U.S. trends.

Many of the top names in France, for instance, will look familiar to people in other countries.

On Oct. 19, French author Stéphanie Rapoport released her annual baby name book, L’Officiel des Prénoms, which predicts the top choices for 2018. The top names include Louise, Emma and Jade for girls and Gabriel, Raphaël and Jules for boys.
