Popular names around the world

What are some of the most common/popular names in your country? I'm from California and I often meet a lot of Ashleys, Matthews and Daniels. Do you know the meaning and origin of your own name? Are you named after anyone (family member/celebrity/etc).

Mine comes from the Greek "Alexandra" and it means "defender of mankind". My middle name is my grandmother's. Are middle names common in your country?
