Yesterday we came up with some girl names that were either particularly Canadian or particularly American. So today let’s do the same thing for boy names.
Again, here are the two different methods:
First, we’ll look at the most popular names that appeared in only one set of data (either Canada or the U.S.) in 2022.
Second, we’ll look at the names that appeared in both sets of data, focusing on how proportionally popular each name was in each place. For the boy names below, I calculated the proportions by dividing each name’s U.S. usage by the total number of boys born in the U.S. last year (1,863,582) and each name’s Canadian usage by the total number of boys born Canada last year (180,763).
Top Canada-only boy names
The 2022 Canadian data included 261 boy names that were not in the U.S. data. Below are the 10 most popular Canada-only boy names.
Number of boys (Can.)
Nine out of ten are French names used primarily in Quebec:
Edouard: 482 of 492 born in Quebec
Arnaud: 349 of 352
Florent: 71 of 73
Laurier: 60 of 60 (all)
Loik: 47 of 57
Ludovick: 45 of 45 (all)
Renaud: 40 of 42
Gregoire: 30 of 30 (all)
Charles-Edouard: 25 of 27
The Sikh name Gurniwaz, however, was not used in Quebec at all.
Boy names particularly popular in Canada
Now let’s look at the more than 2,950 boy names that appeared in both sets of data. Of the boy names used more frequently in Canada than in the U.S., the 10 below had the largest pro-Canada differentials. (I added the rankings for both countries as well.)
Top U.S.-only boy names
The 2022 U.S. data included 11,297 boy names that were not in the Canadian data. Below are the 10 most popular U.S.-only boy names.
Below are hundreds of baby names with a numerological value of 6.
What do I mean by that?
Well, in numerology, you substitute each letter in a word with that letter’s ordinal value in the alphabet. (The letter B has a value of 2, for instance, because it’s the second letter.) Then you add those ordinal values together to come up with a total. Lastly, you add the digits of that total together to obtain a numerological value.
Here’s an example: The letters in the name Ian have the values 9, 1, and 14. Added together, these values equal 24. And the digits of 24 added together equal 6.
All of the “6” names below are sub-categorized by totals — just in case any of those larger numbers are significant to anyone. Within each group you’ll find some of the most popular “6” names per gender (according to the most recent set of U.S. baby name rankings).
The letters in the following baby names add up to 6.
Girl name (6)
Boy names (6)

The letters in the following baby names add up to 15, which reduces to six (1+5=6).

Looking for a set of baby names with something in common? If so, here are some 5-letter anagram names for you to check out!
Anagrams are words that contain the same set of letters, but not in the same sequence. For instance, the words “alter,” “alert,” and “later” are all anagrams of one another.
Anagram names can be a neat option for siblings — particularly multiples (like twins and triplets). They’re also a clever way to connect a baby name to the name of an older relative (e.g., grandpa Klaus, grandson Lukas).
Below are hundreds of five-letter names (collected from the SSA’s huge database of U.S. baby names) that happen to be anagrams of other names.
