I've noticed a lot of people in Utah have weird names Nathaniel or Shyleah, or their name will be a common one but spelt differently (e.g. Tayler, Teylor). This seems to be mostly a mormon thing.

In Texas I knew several boys named Hunter or Austin, I also knew a kid named Bexar (pronounced bear) who was born in San Antonio.

Another one I've seen only in the South is Gage. Never even thought it was a name until I moved down here.
I've seen "Gage" here in Colorado. I work in a pediatrician's office, so I see it all. I don't think we have any kids named Clay.

Females named April are frequently Hispanic around here, but Hispanic names run the gamut.

In the South people had so many kids they started running out of first names (esp girls' names) so they just had to make names up.
