Usage note[edit | edit source]

Most people in Cornwall today use first names from elsewhere in the United Kingdom, but the names on this list are also possibilities. The name Jennifer, originated in Cornwall, has become immensely popular across the English-speaking world.

The Cornish language became extinct in the early twentieth century, but there has been a revival movement by Cornish proud of their heritage. In 2010, UNESCO announced that its former classification of the language as "extinct" was "no longer accurate".[1]
