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.
