I forgot to post the 2015 rankings, but here are the 2014 rankings — the top two names (Eliška and Jakub) were the same.

Some of the names used just once last year include: Arslen, Bivoj, Cirilla, Dalibor Jan, Elayo, Fedderick, Gyozo, Horst, Inari, Janko, Kvído, Leen, Mio, Nemanja, Oktavián, Pankrác, Quido Adam, Rostislava, Sagvan, Torian, Ute, Velen Vítek, Wendelin, Xenie, Yazan, and Žasmina. (This is a mix of both boy and girl names.)

Gyozo means “conqueror” in Hungarian. It’s basically the Hungarian equivalent of Victor.
