Popular Baby Names in Sweden, 2019

According to Statistics Sweden, the most popular baby names in the country in 2019 were Alice and Lucas.

Here are Sweden’s top 10 girl names and top 10 boy names of 2019:

Girl Names

  1. Alice, 688 baby girls
  2. Olivia, 645
  3. Astrid, 628
  4. Maja, 618
  5. Vera, 607
  6. Ebba, 590
  7. Ella, 582
  8. Wilma, 574
  9. Alma, 562
  10. Lilly, 561

Boy Names

  1. Lucas, 768 baby boys
  2. Liam, 760
  3. William, 732
  4. Elias, 729
  5. Noah, 680
  6. Hugo, 669
  7. Oliver, 647
  8. Oscar, 645
  9. Adam, 620
  10. Matteo, 596

In the girls’ top 10, Elsa was knocked off by Vera, which jumped all the way from 19th in 2018 to 5th in 2019.

In the boys’ top 10, Alexander was knocked off by Matteo, which experienced an even bigger jump: 27th to 10th.

So far I’m not sure what gave Vera and Matteo such big boosts, but no doubt it was pop culture — probably a Swedish TV show. That said, Swedish car manufacturer Volvo did introduce an autonomous, electric vehicle called Vera in 2018.

The names in Sweden’s top 100 that rose the fastest from 2018 to 2019 were Hedda and Frans. The names that dropped the fastest were Felicia (bye, Felicia!) and Viktor.

In 2018, the top two names in Sweden were Alice and William.
