If Leon and Léon had been counted as a single name, their combined total (585) would have been enough to edge Arthur (584) out of second place on the boys’ list.

And the gender-neutral name Lou managed to pop up on both lists in nearly the same spot: 26th for girls, 27th for boys.

(I’m a little surprised that as many as 5 baby girls in Belgium got the English word “believe” as their first name. I wonder if something specific was influencing that usage…?)

This time around, Belgium also highlighted the girl and boy names that saw the largest increases and decreases in usage over the last decade (2011-2021). The top 5 in each category were…

  • Girl names
    • Largest increases: Alba, Ellie, Ellis, Alya, Cilou
    • Largest decreases: Lisa, Laura, Julie, Lotte, Anaïs
  • Boy names
    • Largest increases: Georges, Lio, Gaston, Otis, Lyam
    • Largest decreases: Maxime, Thomas, Simon, Wout, Nathan

Malta’s top baby names of 2021 were…

Girls Names

  • Emma
  • Mia
  • Ella
  • Valentina
  • Emily

Boy Names

  • Matteo
  • Luca
  • Noah
  • Adam
  • Jake

My source wasn’t explicit about the rankings, so I’ve ordered them here the way they were ordered in the article. I’m guessing that Emma and Matteo were the top choices.

Malta’s government finally began registering Maltese names in late 2020, thanks to a software upgrade that included Maltese font, so the 2021 rankings are the first to take Maltese orthography into account. The four most popular Maltese names last year were…

Maltese names Guze, Ganni, Eliza, Lucija

(These are the Maltese equivalents of John, Joseph, Elizabeth, and Lucia.)

Back in 2018, the top two names in Malta were Emma and Noah.
