In the boys’ top 10, Alexander was knocked off by Matteo, which experienced an even bigger jump: 27th to 10th.

So far I’m not sure what gave Vera and Matteo such big boosts, but no doubt it was pop culture — probably a Swedish TV show. That said, Swedish car manufacturer Volvo did introduce an autonomous, electric vehicle called Vera in 2018.

The names in Sweden’s top 100 that rose the fastest from 2018 to 2019 were Hedda and Frans. The names that dropped the fastest were Felicia (bye, Felicia!) and Viktor.

In 2018, the top two names in Sweden were Alice and William.
