In Mexico, the most common names were Juan and José (for boys) and Maria (for girls), both often followed by Guadalupe ("Lupe" or Lupita") as middle name (Think for example about the case about Lupita Nyongo, born in Mexico City)

 

Now according to the National Population Registry's Bureau, these were the top 10 names last year:

 

Girls:  Sofía, Camila, Valentina, Isabella, Ximena, Natalia, Mía, María Fernanda, Nicole, Melanie.

Boys:  José Luis, Miguel Ángel, José Francisco, Jesús Antonio, Alejandro, Juan Carlos, Ricardo, Daniel, Fernando, Jorge.

 

Yet, I read that  in the state of Nuevo León (one of the largest in the country) tthere's been a grow from 1990 until now were Britany, Kevin and Brayan (yes, that's how they usually spell it in Mexico :facepalm:)

 

About the most common surname, I'm pretty sure it's Hernández, which means son of Hernán or Hernando, itself a variation of Fernando (Ferdinand)

Interesting info. I didn't know that "García" either meant "bear" or "young"

Some statistics says that in Serbia the most popular given names for babies are Nikola (male) and Milica (female).

I just read that most popular names now are Dunja and Lazar.  Also Lena, Maša for girs and Luka and Stefan for boys.

in Serbia there are many names for women who are actually names for fruits. Like Višnja (cherry), Dunja (quince), Jagoda (strawberry) and Malina (raspberry).

No, not many i guess. :d Harry Potter was fairly popular in schools 10 years ago, but with kids growing up it faded away in their memory. I certanly have 2 close friends that were huge HP fans back in the day, all over the books and movies, but now if it is brought in a conversation, they go "pff that kids book" :d
