The mountainous micro-state of Andorra is located in the Pyrenees, sandwiched between France and Spain.
Andorra has a population of fewer than 100,000 people — making it more populous than Monaco and Liechtenstein, but less populous than Malta.
The country’s official language is Catalan, but other languages (like French and Spanish) are also spoken.
Though I haven’t been able to find up-to-date baby name rankings for Andorra, I did recently come across four sets of rankings that were slightly older. So here are Andorra’s most popular baby names of 2015, 2013, 2012, and 2011:
In 2015, a total of 602 babies (304 girls and 298 boys) were born in Andorra.

Looking for a pair of baby names that are mirror images of one another? If so, check out this long list of palindromic name pairings.
What’s a palindrome? It’s a word or phrase that can be read the same way in either direction, i.e., both forwards and backwards. For instance, the words “level,” “refer” and “pop” are all palindromes.
Each of the hundreds of pairings below features two names that contain the same sequence of letters, just written in opposite directions. (Nearly all of these names were collected from the SSA’s huge database of U.S. baby names.)
According to data from the Balearic Institute of Statistics (Ibestat), the most popular baby names in the Balearic Islands (an archipelago that belongs to Spain) in 2013 were Maria and Marc.
Here are the Balearic Islands’ top 10 girl names and top 10 boy names of 2013:
1. Maria, 113 baby girls (2.2%) 2. Julia, 102 (1.99%) 3. Carla, 100 (1.95%) 4. Paula 5. Lucia 6. Sofia 7. Aina 8. Emma 9. Laia 10. Marta
1. Marc, 157 baby boys (2.91%) 2. Pau, 106 (1.97%) 3. Hugo, 102 (1.89%) 4. Daniel 5. Joan 6. Alejandro 7. Adam 8. Mohamed 9. Lucas 10. Miquel
Maria and Marc were also the #1 names on the islands of Mallorca (which hosts about 80% of the population) and Menorca (9%). On Ibiza (11%), the winners were Martina and Hugo. On Formentera (1%), the winners were Lucia and Aitor — a name invented by Basque writer Agosti Xaho in the mid-19th century.
