Popular Baby Names in Ontario, 2015 (Finalized)

baby names, ontario, canada, 2015According to finalized data released yesterday by Ontario’s Ministry of Government and Consumer Services, the most popular baby names in the province last year were — as expected — Olivia and Liam.

Here are Ontario’s official top 10 girl names and top 10 boy names of 2015:

Girl Names
1. Olivia
2. Emma
3. Charlotte
4. Ava
5. Sophia
6. Emily
7. Abigail
8. Isabella
9. Amelia and Mia (tie)
10. Ella

Boy Names
1. Liam
2. Benjamin
3. Noah
4. Lucas
5. Ethan
6. William
7. Nathan
8. Logan
9. Mason
10. Jacob

According to the news release, “Tenley, Riaan and Eason are brand new to the list this year.” I’m pretty sure this is a reference to the top 100, not the full list, as I doubt a name like Tenley has never been used in Ontario before.

Here’s Ontario’s provisional list for 2015, which had Ethan in 2nd place, interestingly.
