Ontario’s Most Popular Baby Names

The province releases the most common baby names of 2012


 

There's a reason why you may have noticed a lot of babies named Olivia and Liam crawling around lately. A news release from the Government of Ontario revealed the province’s most popular baby names, with those mentioned above topping the list for the second year in a row. This data comes from the Ontario Registrar General’s annual list of registered births in the province from the previous year. You can check out what other names made the cut for the top five boys and girls names below.

ServiceOntario also ranked August as the busiest birth month of 2012, followed by July and October. The average weight of newborns was 7lb 6oz, and more boys were born than girls.

Parents have up to a year to register their baby’s birth online through the convenient 4-in-1 Newborn Bundle. The quick process covers the registration, birth certificate, application for a social insurance number and signing up for Canada child benefits.
