In 2019, these were the most popular names for girls:

  1. Emily
  2. Grace
  3. Fiadh
  4. Sophie
  5. Hannah

Interestingly, not one of the top five names for girls appeared in the top 100 names a half-century earlier.

Meanwhile, the top five boys names last year were:

  1. Jack
  2. James
  3. Noah
  4. Conor
  5. Daniel

Jack has held top spot since 2007 except for 2016, when James was the most popular choice.

Odhrán with the síneadh fada, Eli, Ruairí and Joey were new entrants into the top 100 for boys in 2019.

The CSO says girls are given a wider variety of names than boys with 4,814 girls’ names registered compared to 3,725 boys’ names.

Some less popular names for boys included Teidí, Saul, Dexter and Ruán. Less popular girls’ names included Féile, Jorja, Kyrah and Constance.
