Emma and Emil most popular in 2011

2011 was another year with only minor changes in the use of names, with Emma claiming the top spot for the third successive year. Emil finally knocked Lucas/Lukas off the top spot for the boys in 2011 after many years of increasing popularity. Nora and Sara took second and third place respectively for the girls, and Mathias retained 3rd place for the boys.

The trend of using girls’ names ending with “a” or “ah” appears to have peaked. For the fifth year in a row, about fifty-two per cent of girls were given such names. Boys continue to follow the international trend with names from the Bible.

Local variations are difficult to find, but Mohammad is still the most popular boys’ name in Oslo.
