Which names were the trendiest among baby boys in Canada last year?
Below you’ll find Canada’s fastest-rising and highest-debuting boy names of 2022.
Just keep in mind that we can’t directly compare rises and debuts in the Canadian data to rises and debuts in the U.S. data, because Canada releases a lot less data than the U.S. does. (For more details, see the post on Canada’s rising girl names.)
Here are the boy names that saw the biggest increases in usage in terms of absolute change (numbers of babies) from 2021 to 2022:
Robin, rose from 129 to 220 baby boys (+91)
Walker, 238 to 300 (+62)
Muhammad, 535 to 595 (+60)
Casey, 153 to 206 (+53)
Leon, 294 to 347 (+53)
I’m so intrigued by Robin! Anyone know why it got such a boost last year?
Here are the boy names that saw the biggest increases in usage in terms of relative change (percentages of babies) from 2021 to 2022:
Mattheo, rose from 5 to 18 baby boys (260%)
Shepherd, 9 to 28 (211%)
Affan, 7 to 21 (200%)
Ghaith, 5 to 15 (200%)
Abdallah, 7 to 20 (1.86%)
Finally, here are the boy names that debuted most impressively in Canada’s baby name data in 2022:
Rabaab, 14 baby boys
Kabiel was tied with Kyland and Valor, both of which were also given to 10 babies.
Other boy-name debuts included Dutton (9), Halston (8), Astro (7), Rip (6), and Laker (5).
Dutton and Rip were no doubt influenced by the TV series Yellowstone, which follows the wealthy, ranch-owning Dutton family of Montana. The foreman of the Duttons’ ranch is named Rip Wheeler. Both Dutton and Rip have been on the rise in the U.S. recently as well.
And if you’re curious about the decreases, Canada’s fastest-falling boy names in terms of absolute change were Logan, Benjamin, and Noah, and in terms of relative change were Bauer, Larry, and Eamon.
Henry and Alexander replaced Mason (now ranked 11th) and Ethan (13th).
The boy names that saw the largest increases in usage in terms of absolute numbers of babies were…
Kobe, increased by 998 babies
Kobe was influenced by the untimely death of basketball great Kobe Bryant (whose daughter, Gianna, had an equally strong influence on girl names.)
Theodore and Luka were also among the fastest risers of 2019.
The boy names that saw the largest increases in usage in terms of relative numbers of babies were…
Omere, increased by 460%
Omere could be from Omere Harris, son of YouTubers (and former Love & Hip Hop-ers) Mendeecees Harris and Yandy Smith.
Ripp was a debut name just one year earlier. Speaking of debuts…
Here are the boy names that debuted most impressively in the 2020 data:
Aarnik, debuted with 14 baby boys
Amavi, 12 (a double-debut with 30 girls as well)
Itzan is probably from Spanish actor Itzan Escamilla, who stars in the Netflix series Élite.
Carin could be from Mexican singer Carin Leon (whose real name is Oscar; “Carin” is a shortening of his nickname, Oscarin.)
Jahkor was the name of a character in the Netflix movie All Day and a Night (2020).
The boy names that saw the largest decreases in usage in terms of absolute numbers of babies were…
Ethan, decreased by 1,801 babies
The boy name that saw the largest decrease in usage in terms of relative numbers of babies was Daer (-80%), and the boy name that saw the steepest drop off the list was Montae (from 20 babies in 2019 to fewer than 5 in 2020).

Below are hundreds of baby names with a numerological value of 7.
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 Jack have the values 10, 1, 3, and 11. Added together, these values equal 25. And the digits of 25 added together equal 7.
All of the “7” 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 “7” names per gender (according to the most recent set of U.S. baby name rankings).
