According to the Population Register Centre, Finnish-speaking families welcomed 380 little girls named Sofia and 438 boys named Elias into their homes.
Among girls the runner-up names were Aino, Aada, Ella and Emma. After Elias, many parents chose to dub their little boys Leo, Onni, Eino and Oliver.
Oliver was also a popular choice among the country’s Swedish-speakers – in fact it was the most popular boy’s name among this group – 33 boys received the first name in 2014.
Altogether 38 baby girls were given the name Amanda by their Swedish-speaking parents – the largest number for this group.
Other trendy girl’s names among Swedish-speakers all began with the letter E: Ellen, Emma, Ella and Edith. For the boys, the other favourites were Anton, Leo, Benjamin and Hugo.
The PRC examined records for 58,343 babies who were given first names in 2014 – 28,542 were girls and 29,801 were boys.
