Emma and Noah topped the list of first names in Quebec in 2021

Emma and Noah topped the list of first names in Quebec in 2021

After topping the charts from 2015 to 2018, Emma is at the forefront again, but Noah has surpassed William, the most popular male name in Quebec for the past 20 years.

Last year 521 Emmas and 717 Noahs were born. We found 519 Olivia and 709 William, second on the list. The first name Liam dropped from first to fifth and Jacob made a significant increase from ninth to sixth.

In terms of female first names, Alice (508) on Olivia’s heels is in third place. Leah, who was ousted after a ten-year reign (2004 to 2011 and 2012-2013), now ranks eighth.

Oddly enough, note the names Joe (344) and Felix (484) who reappeared in the top ten, thereby removing Clara and Logan from the list.
