Popular Baby Names on the Isle of Man, 2017

According to the Civil Registry of the Isle of Man, the most popular baby names on the Isle of Man in 2017 were Olivia and Oliver.

The press release didn’t offer actual rankings, so instead I’ll give you some quotes:

  • “Oliver takes over from Archie and Theo which were [2016’s] top choices in the Isle of Man.”
  • “The most popular choice for girls was Olivia, with Evie, Ella, Scarlet, Isla and Amelia not far behind.”
  • “Some of the less well-known names registered in 2017 included Ottilie…and Jaxon.”

The last time I spotted proper baby name rankings for the Isle of Man was back in 2007, when the top names were Sophie/Sofie/Sofia and Jack.

In other Manx name-news, the town of Ramsey recently obtained a new road sweeper and held a competition to name it. Fifteen entries were submitted. The winning name was “Sweepy McSweep Face,” clearly inspired by legendary Boaty McBoatface (which is now the name of a submarine, confusingly).

In the boys’ top 10, Elias and Isak replace Mathias and Aksel.

In the capital city of Oslo, the top names were Mohammad and Sofia. Statistics Norway said that it doesn’t have a “good explanation” for why Sofia-with-an-A is #1 in the capital while Sofie-with-an-E is #1 in the country.

In 2016, the top names were Nora/Norah/Noora and William.

That image is a piece of a larger infographic showing the most popular baby names in each Norwegian county. In two counties, Oppland and Aust-Agder, the top girl name last year was the intriguing Tiril. Tiril seems to have no specific meaning; it may have been derived from the (nonsense?) word tirilil from the 19th century poem “Lokkende Toner” by Johan Sebastian Welhaven.

(A similar name we talked about recently was Tirrell.)

I forgot to post Norway’s 2015 rankings, but in 2014 the top names were Nora/Norah and Lucas/Lukas.
