The European microstate of Monaco lies on the French Riviera. Though it shares a border with only France, it’s just a few miles away from France’s border with Italy.

My source for the 2019 rankings suggested that Charlotte was the #1 girl name because of Charlotte Casiraghi — the daughter of Monaco’s Princess Caroline, who is in turn the daughter of Grace Kelly. Charlotte was making headlines in mid-2019: She married film producer Dimitri Rassam civilly in Monaco in early June, then religiously in France later the same month.
