A Trip Down Memory Lane: The Top Names of 2021 and 2022
Rewinding a bit, Olivia and Liam were the shining stars of 2021 and 2022, claiming the top spots on the list of popular baby names. Interestingly, a trend was noticeable among the top girl names - each one ending with the enchanting vowel "a."
As for the boys, the top five names saw some jostling for positions, but no new names managed to penetrate this exclusive group.
Will They Hold Their Reign?
As we make our way through 2023, we can't help but wonder whether these well-loved names will continue to be favourites. Will the trend of girls' names ending in "a" dominate again this year? And what about those names we've seen less and less of lately, like Hayden and Walter? Are they set for a comeback, or are they moving towards the endangered list? Only time will tell.

But enough with the past and the speculation, let's dive into the now. Based on current popularity, the most loved baby names of 2023 are shaping up to be intriguing.
