Having topped the charts from 2015 to 2018, Emma once again took the lead, while overtaking the extremely popular Noah William, undoubtedly the most popular male name in Quebec over the past 20 years.
521 Emma and 717 Noah were born last year. In second place on the list we find 519 Olivia and 709 William. Thus the first name Liam drops from first to fifth place, and Jacob achieved a remarkable rise, from ninth to sixth place.
As for female first names, in third place are Alice (508), which is on the heels of Olivia. He was ousted from power after ten years (2004 to 2011 and 2012-2013), and Lea is now eighth.
In the novelties, note the first names Zoé (344) and Félix (484), which again appeared among the top ten ranks, removing Clara and Logan from the list.
