Popular Baby Names in Manitoba, 2016

According to provisional data released yesterday by the Province of Manitoba, the most popular baby names in the province this year were Olivia and Liam.

Here are Manitoba’s projected top 10 girl names and top 11 boy names of 2016:

Girl Names
1. Olivia, 103 baby girls
2. Emma, 81
3. Emily, 72
4. Ava (tie), 58
5. Sophia (tie), 58
6. Chloe, 55
7. Abigail, 54
8. Charlotte, 44
9. Hannah, 43
10. Amelia, 42

Boy Names
1. Liam, 94 baby boys
2. William, 71
3. Benjamin, 68
4. Lucas, 65
5. Ethan, 64
6. Noah, 63
7. Alexander, 53
8. Carter, 52
9. Mason, 51
10. Logan and James* (tie), 49

On the girls’ list, Charlotte and Amelia replace Avery and Lily.

On the boys’ list, Benjamin, Ethan, Noah, and Carter replace Oliver, Jacob and Owen.

I apparently forgot to post Manitoba’s 2015 rankings, but I do have a post with the 2014 rankings.

*My source included an 11th boy name, probably because 10th place was a tie. Too bad the writer didn’t notice the tie on the girls’ list! I feel like we should get an 11th girl name now…
