English English names

I know that throughout history there has been a lot of back-and-forth cultural borrowing between England and all her neighbors, but I'm wondering if any names exist that are particularly English and not, say, Scottish, or Welsh. Or does that distinction not exist? For example, I know "Edward" is an English name, but in England is it recognized that Edward is English and not Scottish or Welsh?

First or last names are fine, I'm just curious how it works...

Does that make sense? If not, just ignore me I guess. :P
