Alberta's Top Baby Names

visit the Raising Children Alberta websiteEach year Service Alberta, the provincial department responsible for vital statistics, publishes a list of Alberta’s top baby names. It’s a favourite with parents who are attempting to choose the perfect name for their child. The list of most popular girl and boy names is compiled from the Registration of Live Birth forms completed by parents and processed by the department.

Service Alberta publishes a statistical report including births, marriages, deaths, adoptions, and change of names data. For more information about the statistical information available from the department, contact Vital Statistics. Service Alberta has also created an easy-to-use app that helps Albertans find the perfect baby name. Click here to go to the app's download page on the Open Government site.
