Female names are more common in Greece, especially in rural areas, according to a new study.
Female names are the most common among Greeks aged over 50, with male names the most popular among those aged 50-54.
In the past decade, Greeks have also begun using the word “boy” in place of “girl” in their names, and the use of female pronouns has also increased.
Greece’s new government is also trying to change the gender of some politicians.
In 2015, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras announced a new law that would make male and female officials of different professions eligible for public office.
