WINNIPEG -- With names like Charlotte and Lincoln making the list, it seems that 2019’s most popular baby names in Manitoba took some inspiration from the royal family and a famous past president.

The names Emily and Liam each moved up one spot from 2018, ranking respectively as the most popular female and male names last year.

Though the 2019 list bears many similarities to the year before, some new names to make the top-ten list include: Hannah, Avery, Mason and James.

Here’s the full list of the top ten baby names for boys and girls in Manitoba this past year:


  1. Emily
