Popular Baby Names in Prince Edward Island, 2014

According to incomplete data from PEI’s Office of Vital Statistics, the most popular baby names in Prince Edward Island in 2014 were Olivia and Jack.

Here are PEI’s top 5 girl names and top 5 boy names of 2014:

Girl Names Boy Names
1. Olivia, 10 baby girls
2. Chloe, 9
3. Ava, 8
4. Charlotte, 8
5. Lily, 8
1. Jack, 12 baby boys
2. Oliver, 10
3. Owen, 10
4. Mason, 9
5. William, 9

Last year’s #1 baby names, Brooklyn and Liam, probably didn’t even make the top 5 this year. (It’s hard to know for sure, though, as the data only covers January through November.)

My source article made a big deal about there being 6 babies named Jaxon vs. just 3 with the traditional spelling Jackson, but the gap was even bigger in 2013 when there were 11 babies named Jaxon/Jaxen/Jaxsen and just 5 named Jackson.

P.S. I visited PEI earlier this year and spotted the names Prudence and Sophus while there.
