    Default Names for twenty-year-olds

    Please write a few names you (personally) think popular for young people who are about 20 years old now (this group is in the age of students, and I need some common "students'" names for my booklet). Just think about some young people you know and their names which seem to you quite common.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up.)

    Do you mean as if those people were from an English-speaking country? Or would you also use names from other languages?
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
