Ah, the English. They are, as my mother once said while on board a British Airways flight, so very English. Despite holding a longstanding resentment of the British for reasons that can’t really be explained (though in the interest of full disclosure, I also dislike the French, Americans, Latvians, Scottish, Kenyans, Indians, Burkina Fasoans, Italians, Uzbekistanis, Chinese, Canadians, Nepalese, Peruvians… basically anyone who isn’t Scotch-Hungarian), I find British names to be absolutely delightful in their adorable ridiculousness. This isn’t meant as a shot at our British readers, but come on… some British names are just too awesome/silly to be ignored.

And thus, I give you the 10 Most Delightfully British Names:

10. Hugh Dancy

9. Rowan Atkinson

8. Imelda Staunton

7. Gemma Arterton

6. Anna Popplewell

5. Rupert Grint

4. Rufus Sewell

3. Prunella Scales

2. Imogen Poots

1. Benedict Cumberbatch
