Olivia (60)
Ava (59)
Emma (53)
Lily (53)
Abigail (48)
Sophie (48)
Emily (47)

Madison (40)


Owen (77)

I had no idea how popular my son's name was before he was born. I only knew of two other people with his name and they are both adults. my daughter's name isn't on the list.

I find it interesting that the number one names only account for a very small percentage of the births. It means that "super popular" isn't really THAT popular in Nova Scotia. Good to know!

Where did you find this list? Is there a site that has the top names by specific areas? I'd be interested to see what my top names are ranked at for my area.

Very interesting, thanks for sharing.
I'm not very keen on popular names (for that reason. My own name is more unique, and I loved that growing up. . . still do).
But, I have a soft spot for Isabella. I wouldn't use it, but love it.
