These Are the Most Popular Canadian Baby Names of 2016

Vegetarian isn’t just a trend on restaurant menus – it’s also the basis for baby names in 2016.

Babies named Leaf, Plant, Kale, Rye, Sage, Forest, Animal, Bear and Hawk all graced Canadian soil this year, as did a handful of Covenants, Divines, Mavericks, Peaces, Rhythms, Heros.

Things were a little less avant-garde when it came to the most popular Canadian baby names.

Liam emerged as the top baby boy name, while Sophie topped girls’ names. Jackson, which was the top boys’ name for years, dropped all the down to the 15 spot this year.

BabyCentre.ca evaluated 50,000 names of babies from coast to coast to coast to compile their list, and it doesn’t differ much from that of our neighbours to the South, which features the same top three girls names.
