According to data from the Régie des rentes du Québec (RRQ), the most popular baby names in Quebec in 2014 were Lea and William.

Here are the province’s top 10 girl names and top 10 boy names of 2014:

The biggest moves within the top 10 were the fall of Samuel (down 7 spots) the rises of both Chloe and Thomas (up 5 spots each).

Quebec is one of the wonderful places that releases all of its baby name data (yay!) so now let’s check out some of the names at the other end of the spectrum.

The following names were bestowed only once in Quebec last year:

**Noeliam might be a mashup of Noel + Liam. Maybe his parents are big Oasis fans?

Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii …Gets a Name Change

Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii — this used to be the actual name of a 9-year-old girl from New Zealand.

She had been so embarrassed by it that she “had refused to tell her friends her name and went simply by “K”.”

Then Judge Rob Murfitt stepped in. While presiding over a custody hearing for the girl, he decided to make her a ward of the court in order to change her name. He wrote in his ruling:

The court is profoundly concerned about the very poor judgment which this child’s parents have shown in choosing this name. It makes a fool of the child and sets her up with a social disability and handicap, unnecessarily.

Thank you, Judge Murfitt. You did the right thing.

Other baby names Judge Murfitt has seen in the NZ Family Court system include:

Cinderella Beauty Blossom (blocked)
Fat Boy (blocked)
Fish and Chips (twins) (blocked)
Hitler (blocked)
Kaos (blocked)
Keenan Got Lucy (blocked)
Midnight Chardonnay (allowed)
Number 16 Bus Shelter (allowed)
O.crnia (changed to Oceania)
Sex Fruit (blocked)
Spiral Cicada (blocked)
Stallion (blocked)
Twisty Poi (blocked)
Violence (allowed)
Yeah Detroit (blocked)

P.S. Yup, New Zealand is also where 4real‘s name was blocked. (Superman was later approved.)
