INTERACTIVE: Popular baby names in Manitoba, 2006 - 2011

  • Print

Manitoba Vital Statistics provided the Free Press with the top baby names for the last six years, broken down by postal "forward sortation area" -- the first three letters of a postal code -- which corresponds to a geographic area.

Because of privacy concerns, Vital Stats would only add a name to the list if 10 babies were given the name during the five-year period. In some areas, that means there is no data: no name was used ten times or more.

In some areas, 10 girls or boys were not born during the five-year period, so we have no names and no birth counts for those areas.

The data does not take into account creative or alternative spellings of the same name. For example, Hailey is a popular name in several areas, but a Haylee or a Haileigh wouldn't be added to the total.

Also note, for 2011, the data only goes up to early November.
