Maja was the most popular name given to girls in Sweden last year, pushing the former number one Alice into second place. For boys, Oscar and William came out top.

There has not been a lot of movement when it comes to the top ten names given to children in this country, when one compares last year to the year before. If any "climbers" should be noted, it is perhaps Olivia for girls, moving from 17th to 10th place, and Theo, climbing from 16th to 8th place.

It is the news agency TT that have checked out the most favoured names, according to Statistics Sweden.
