Of those names, Olivia was the most popular for those in B.C. This name first gained popularity in 1974 and began to rise in popularity in the ’90’s.

Following Olivia on the list for most popular baby names is:

  • Oliver
  • Lucas
  • Liam
  • Ethan
  • Noah
  • William
  • Benjamin
  • Charlotte
  • Emma
  • Leo

These statistics are from January 1 to December 18, 2019. And several of these popular names are the same from 2018. The exception is Logan and Amelia, which were two of the most popular names in 2018, but did not make it onto the 2019 list.

New to 2019 is William, Leo, Liam and Charlotte. There were 40,978 babies born in 2019 in B.C. compared to 43,844 B.C. babies in 2018.
