Today, the Swiss government released statistics on the most popular baby names in 2015. The Swiss statistics office has been crunching this data for 30 years.



Noah was the most popular boys
Clare's insight:

The Swiss stats are always fascinating to delve into, because they're broken down by language (French, German, Italian and Romantsch), among other things. This is the best English-language story about the latest stats that I've found so far - it has a link to a data spreadsheet too.

Clare's insight:

One country, four top names lists - one for each of Switzerland's official languages.  Emma, Lara, the Julia-family, the Sophie-family, Noah, Liam and the Leo-names are popular all over the place; the German-speakers love their Italian names (but not always the same ones as Italian-speakers); and my favourite surprise is Levin as no.4 for boys in German areas.
