Popular baby names in Manitoba (Canada), 2020

According to Manitoba’s Vital Statistics Agency, the most popular baby names in the province last year were Olivia and Liam.

Oddly, Manitoba didn’t publish two gender-specific sets of rankings for 2020. Instead, the province’s annual report featured a single set of rankings that combined both genders.

So here are Manitoba’s top 10 baby names overall for 2020:

  1. Liam
  2. Olivia
  3. Oliver
  4. Noah
  5. Levi
  6. James
  7. Lucas
  8. Sophia
  9. Amelia
  10. Emily, Theodore (tied)

From this, we can deduce that…

  • The top four girl names were Olivia, Sophia, Amelia and Emily.
  • The top seven boy names were Liam, Oliver, Noah, Levi, James, Lucas, and Theodore.

We don’t have enough information to compare these rankings to the 2019 rankings, but we do know that the top two names stayed the same, and that Oliver jumped from 8th place to 2nd place.
