If the man named Dominique
is French, that certainly could be his name. Dominique
is both the male and female form in France
would definitely both have been in use in England before the 20th century. Allen
would probably have been there occasionally as a spelling variation of Alan
might have been used by English parents who were fascinated by the French, and Alexis
might have been used by parents who had some knowledge of eastern Europe (though it probably would have been for a boy in the 19th century, not a girl.) I suppose if Arina
were in the same family, it might make a little sense. It does seem a bit early for a Karen
, but again, someone who had a connection with Denmark might have used it.
Since the English have always had complete freedom to name their children whatever they want, it's hard to say that any of these names would have been completely impossible in the 19th century. But only Neil
, and Allen
would have been at all common; they others would have been quite rare, if they existed.
