Every year when the first baby on the year is born, we gawk and coo and awwwww.  Every year when the Alberta list of baby names comes out, we gawk and giggle and search for our own names.

Kara @ The Art of Naming's insight:

So many amazing names on this list! Hard to choose favorites but these stood out to me: Alasdair Frederick Murray, Casper Hendrik, Jaspar Benedict, Maxim Rhodri, Rohan Grey and Sebastian Tobias for the boys. Cecily Benedicta May, Cressida Flora Kate, Francesca Antigone Rosalind, Heloise Francoise Mathilde, Phillippa Jane Scarlett and Rosamund Gwendoline for the girls.

Clare's curator insight, November 27, 2013 5:57 PM

There are so many good names it's hard to pick just a few examples...I'll go for Philip Bede, Iskander Luke, Thomasin Anne, Gytha Katherine, and more.  I do wonder what all these well-named ladies and gents are up to nowadays.

 

The statistics here may go some way towards explaining why Gemma and Claire don't feel quite so fresh in the UK as they seem to in the US.

 

And it's an interesting point that 'Times' announcers may be somewhat ahead of the trends in their most popular names.
