Most Common British Proper Nouns

Can you name the most common proper nouns in British English?

Classic
NOTES: Single letters are excluded. Abbreviations and acronyms are included. Nouns consisting of two or more words count each word individually, e.g. Mount Fuji would count towards both Mount and Fuji. The words listed appear in over 90% of the corpus reference sectors. This excludes obscurer words, which appear an unrepresentive number of times due to a bias in one of the corpus sectors, e.g. Darlington would rank 63rd despite appearing in less than 60% of the corpus sectors. Frequency is per million words.
