2020 has been a tumultuous year, which is a sentiment even the annual rankings of baby names in Canada couldn’t escape.
Despite this year’s rankings shifting drastically, the names that stood mostly unchanged from last year stand as a testament to their popularity. Olivia climbed up one place from last year to knock out the previous champion, Sophia. Emma continued its ascent for another year taking second place while Mia crawled back up the chart to sit at number three this year.

And now for the young gentlemen. At the top of the chart was Liam – a favourite of parents for a number of years – and also visited the podium at third place in 2019 and first place in 2018. Last year’s crown went to Jackson, which dropped down to second place this year. The top name of 2017, Noah, fell one place to number three.
