About the statistics
Statistics on the names of all registered inhabitants of Norway. Find the most popular names for boys and girls born last year, and for all years back to 1880. All names with more than three bearers give hits in the name search engine.
Non Norwegian letters
Some names include non-Norwegian letters. The management in the register has not been consistent. Therefore the non-Norwegian letters are "translated". The coding is as follows
- È to E
- É toE
- Ô to O
- ' to blank
- Ä to Æ
- Ü to Y
- Ö to Ø

Prior to this, a minimum of three months' advance notice is given inthe Statistics Release Calendar. This is one of Statistics Norway’s key principles for ensuring that all users are treated equally.
