Olivia and Noah continue to reign as top baby names in Alberta for 2023. Olivia maintains a record setting streak as the most popular girls name in Alberta for the 11th year in a row, while Noah remains top pick for boys’ names for a fifth consecutive year.   

In choosing names for their new arrivals, parents appear to have found inspiration in a variety of places. Some parents may have been inspired by plants like Ivy, Rose, Juniper, Poppy, Azalea or in nature like Wren, River, Meadow and Flora.

Others may have taken a literary approach with names like Bennett, Sawyer, Juliet and Atticus. As always, popular culture may have had an influence through famous musicians like Aretha, Lennon, Presley and Hendrix or athletes like Beckham, Crosby and Evander or even fairytale princesses such as Tiana, Jasmine, Aurora, Ariel and Belle.
