Emma and Markus most popular baby names

Emma has started to decline in popularity, but is still top of the list. The next favourites are Thea, Ida and Sara(h). Markus/Marcus is back at the top after 2 years with Mathias. Number three is Jonas, with Kristian/Christian fourth.

The use of short girls’ names ending in "a" or "ah" stands at 33.5 per cent for the third year running. This indicates that the peak has been reached. The last peak was in 1883.

New in the top 40 for girls are Linnea, imported from Sweden, and Selma, which is still a typical phenomenon in Oslo.

The only new name on the boys’ list is Lucas; last year it was Noah. Johannes is climbing, and even Matheus has started being used.

The statistics cover first names. For first names overall, Alexander/Aleksander is the most common. For girls, Marie dominates as the number two name. If we look at all living women, Marie even beats Anne as the most popular name, and typically Anne Marie as the most common combination (6 109 women).

More information and tables are available on the Norwegian pages.
