Most Popular Names in Sweden 2008
The most popular names for Swedish newborns in 2008 were Maja (for girls) and Lukas (for boys), according to Swedish Parents’ site alltombarn.
Second and third on the girl’s list was Julia and Emma and on the boys list Oskar and Elias. According to the site, Swedish parents try hard to avoid names that are the most popular, and the trend in Sweden is to try to give your child an individual name – but it is not the easiest. During 2008, 6337 children were given names that no one else born the same year had.
