Baby Olivia tops the chart
At Thompson Okanagan Trends Magazine, we love reporting on this annual trend: the top baby names in British Columbia.
Olivia is once again the front-runner for the most popular name for babies born this year in British Columbia.
Olivia is followed by Liam, Noah, Jack, Emma, Benjamin, Theodore, Oliver and Charlotte, according to the Vital Statistics Agency’s preliminary figures from Jan. 1 to Dec. 15, 2021.
Only names that occur five or more times are listed.
From Jan. 1 to Dec. 15, 2021, 40,333 babies were born in B.C. In 2020, 42,413 babies were born in B.C.
Olivia was also the top choice in 2019 and 2020.
