“Bringing a child into the world is a truly momentous occasion. Whether the name you chose was in the top 10 or one of a kind, these names are only the beginning of the endless possibilities that lie ahead for each child.”

It appears no one in Alberta was inspired by the Hollywood box-office hit Barbie. No Barbies or Kens were born in Alberta last year, though there were 13 Kenneths born in the province.

With Taylor Swift mania running rampant in 2023, there were 13 girl Taylors and seven boy Taylors born. There’s no telling whether they were named after the pop star.

The province also pointed to a few names inspired by plants: Ivy, Rose, Juniper, Poppy and Azalea. There were also literary influences such as Bennett, Sawyer, Juliet and Atticus.
