These rankings are based on data covering the year up to December 13th. By that date, 619 baby girls and 704 baby boys had been born on the island.

Unexpectedly, PEI released a complete — albeit provisional — list of baby names this time around. So this year we get to check out some of the rare names bestowed just once on the island last year:

Unique Girl NamesUnique Boy Names
Anamika, Athaliah, Brayleigh, Cloud Jrai, Drienne, Élodie, Fearyn, Gray, Haddow, Ishani, Jorie, Kasia, Lorriel, Meekhal, Morayo, Neeltje, Olive-Belle, Paloma, Rilla, Ruthy, Seren, Sudisha, Tomi, Valeah, ZeraAbdul-Rahman, Bane, Berrick, Chivir, Draven, Elon, Felix, Grayden, Hanzebriel, Ibaad, Jordy, Kelton, Leonidas, Maniriho, Marchbank, Najid, Oaks, Porter, Ranaridh, Revel, Sulla, Tully, Wyndham, Yanick, Zeyang

The boy name Bane may have been inspired by the DC Comics supervillain Bane, and the boy name Ranaridh is similar to the name of former Cambodian prime minister Norodom Ranariddh, who died in late 2021.

(More of PEI’s unique baby names can be found on Patreon.)

Finally, in 2020, the top baby names on the island were Nora/Charlotte (tie) and Hudson.

*Nova and Lucas might actually be 4th-place names. My source included conflicting information.

Popular Baby Names in Manitoba, 2020

Manitoba

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.
