The most notable early Emma -- for Britain at least -- was Emma of Normandy (c.985–1052), twice English queen consort to both King Aethelred, and his Danish successor, King Cnut. Emma bore Aethelred three children and, though Aethelred already had at least nine children by his first marriage, Emma fought like a lioness to get her children good positions. As Cnut was keen to have all rival claimants to the throne removed, Emma stepped in to protect her children by marrying Cnut herself, ensuring her children's safety in Normandy.
Also, for much of her time as Queen Consort, both to Aethelred and Cnut, Emma was known as Aelfgifu (see image right).
It may be that being known as Aelfgifu Emma helped pave the way for the name before the Norman Conquest. What we can at least argue is that, without Emma, the Norman invasion may never have happened. A cousin and close friend of William I, William FitzOsbern, became one of these great Norman magnates. Since 1996 when it ranked #1337 (9 births), Ernest has been gradually rising in England and Wales. It is interesting to note that, while Henrietta was the Latinised form of Henriette, the familial vernacular form in Britain was Harriet. Some of this may have been due to Henrietta's adoption by the Jacobites in honour of Henry Benedict Stuart, the last male heir of the Stuart line.
Though Henrietta reached a low of #95 in England and Wales by 1900 (and fell out of the top 100 soon after), it was still strong at #55 in Scotland in that year, though it had fallen out of the Scottish top 100 by 1950. Though it generally declined over the century, there was a noticeble spike in the 1960s. In Scotland, however, Henrietta has been registered no more than three times in any given year since 1975. As such, it is difficult to pin down when Augustus was actually used as a given name and not as a title.

The name Augustus was given a significant boost in the 18th century by the new Hanovarian dynasty. With this royal seal of approval it is little wonder that by 1860 Augustus ranked #83 in England and Wales. Since 1996, Augustus -- having picked up a little use -- has sat steadily between 10 and 30 births per year in England and Wales. In Scotland, Augustus has only been registered three times since 1974: once in 2000, 2001 and 2005. Not so normal now: Norman Wisdom There were never as many of them in the playground as there were Jameses or Johns.
Confusingly, it just so happened that Aelfgifu had been the name of Aethelred's first wife, and one of his daughters (yet again Emma received the name of a former wife).
This was a period of heavy raiding from Scandinavia and Aethelred struggled to keep hold of his kingdom under the Viking onslaught. Through her marriage, Emma was once again Queen of England, and later Queen of Denmark and Norway.
Equally her impact may have been very little, and the name subsequently became common thanks to the influx of Norman noblemen who flocked to England after the conquest.
It was used up to the end of the Middle Ages, but died out after, remaining only as a surname.
Prince Ernest Augustus later became king of Hanover when Salic law prevented his niece, Queen Victoria, from ascending the Hanoverian throne. There is a St Augustus of the sixth century, a friend of St Germanus of Paris, who was abbot of Bourges. The name contined in similar use in the first half of the 20th century, but fell into sharp decline by 1940. In 1015, Cnut the Great, a Danish prince, invaded England and the English just couldn't hold out against his armies. Her marriage to Charles I in 1625, and accession to the throne of England, Scotland and Ireland, brought the name to Britain, where it was latinised as Henrietta Maria. Aethelred died in April 1016, and his eldest surviving son Edmund became king (despite the efforts of Emma to have her eldest son, Edward, made heir). She ensured that her son with Cnut, Harthacnut, became king of Denmark, and acted as regent of Wessex on his behalf in England.

She was named after her maternal aunt Henrietta Ponsonby, Countess of Bessborough who was also known as Harriet.
Along with Walter, Percy and Harold, Norman has almost completely disappeared from the birth registerA  -A  going the same way as Gertrude, Edna and Ethel for girls.Back in 1907, more than 1990 baby boys were called Norman. She also invited her eldest son, Edward, over from Normandy in an attempt to oust power away from her step-son Harold Harefoot.
During the past century, the name has been proudly sported by a general (Schwarzkopf), famous footballer (Whiteside), author (Mailer) and a comedian (Wisdom). But in 2005, the last year for which full records are available, just two boys were registered with the name, one in Shropshire and another in Tyne and Wear.
Richard, once one of the most popular boys' name in the country, is 19th on the 'endangered list'.

In days gone by, tradition held that children were named after their grandparents or godparents, thus ensuring the survival of names that had been around for centuries. But these days, according to the researchers, parents are just as likely to name their offspring after their favourite pop or film star as after older relativesA  -A  or even use something a little more unusual. However, we also need to remember that there are now more choices available.' Statistician Dr Geoff Ellis looked at the most popular baby names in 1907 that failed to make the most popular 100 names lists in any of the past five years. Looking back 200 years to 1807, the third and fourth most popular choices for boys were Thomas and James. In 2005, they occupied the same position in the chart, with Thomas rising to two last year and James slipping to nine. It was the second most popular name 200 years ago, the most popular a century ago and was ranked eighth last year.
Olive has plummeted in popularity but Olivia was the most popular girls' name in 2006 and was placed third last year.
