Monaco

The European micro-state of Monaco lies on the French Riviera. Though it shares a border with only France, it’s just a few miles away from France’s border with Italy.

Last year, Monaco welcomed 862 babies — 427 baby girls and 435 baby boys.

What were the most popular names among these babies? Emma and Leonardo.

Here are Monaco’s top 5 girl names and top 5 boy names of 2022:

(Leonardo has also been the #1 boy name in Italy lately.)

What other names have topped the rankings within the last few years? Here are Monaco’s most popular baby names of 2021, 2020, and 2019:

My source for the 2019 rankings suggested that Charlotte was the #1 girl name because of Charlotte Casiraghi — the daughter of Monaco’s Princess Caroline, who is in turn the daughter of Grace Kelly. Charlotte was making headlines in mid-2019: She married film producer Dimitri Rassam civilly in Monaco in early June, then religiously in France later the same month.

Some thoughts on a few of the above…

  • Künkyi and Tenzin are Tibetan.
  • Nevia and Nevio are Italian. They derive from the Roman family name Naevius, which was based on the Latin word naevus, meaning “birthmark” or “mole (on the body).”
  • Rron is an Albanian. It was created from the word rronj, a dialectal form of rroj, which means “to live, to survive.”

Popular baby names in Australia, 2021

kangaroo

Australia might be the sixth-largest country in terms of area, but it isn’t very large in terms of population. In fact, it’s one of the least densely populated places in the world.

Last year, Australia welcomed just 309,996 babies — 151,079 baby girls and 158,917 baby boys. (By comparison, the U.S. states of California and Texas recorded 420,031 births and 373,340 births, respectively.)

What were the most popular names among the Australian babies of 2021?

Well…we don’t know for sure. Because Australia doesn’t release baby name rankings that cover the entire country.

map of Australia

So here’s the next-best thing: Eight sets of regional Australian rankings — representing Australia’s six states and two most populous territories — all gathered into a single post, followed by a guess about the country’s top five names per gender.

Here are the regional rankings, ordered by total number of births (highest to lowest):

Australia

Finally, using the data from the five most populous regions — which, together, welcomed nearly 95% of the country’s 2021 babies — we can make a guess about Australia’s top baby names overall:

Possible Top Girl NamesPossible Top Boy Names
1. Isla
2. Olivia
3. Charlotte
4. Amelia
5. Ava
1. Oliver
2. Noah
3. Jack
4. William
5. Leo

I’m confident that Oliver was the #1 boy name in Australia last year, but less confident about Isla being the #1 girl name (because Olivia and Charlotte were so close behind).
