Top 100 baby names in Ireland (2019)

The rank of baby girl name Emily from 1998 to 2019 in Ireland
 

According to the annual reports published by the Central Statistics Office of Ireland, Jack and Emily were the most popular babies' names registered in 2019.

Jack has held the top spot for baby boys since 2007 with the exception of 2016 when James was most popular.

Emily remained the first choice for baby girls, a position it has retained since 2011.

Jack, James, Conor and Daniel have been in the top 5 boys' names since 2007. Three of these names - Jack, Conor and James have been in the top 5 since 1998. Noah was the only new name in the top 5 in 2018 and remained there in 2019.

Emily, Grace, Fiadh, Sophie and Hannah were the top 5 names for girls in 2019. Fiadh and Hannah were new entrants to the top 5. Amelia dropped out of the top 5 this year, having been there since 2015.

Notes:

These results are based on the analysis of first names recorded on birth returns for registration and vital statistics, begun by the Central Statistics Office of Ireland in 1998.

Only the first name was used for this analysis. Different spellings of a name have been treated as separate names.

Names containing accents have been recorded without those accents until 2017.

Since 2018, the Irish CSO publication includes the síneadh fada and other diacritics. This has an impact in the order of the popularity of some forenames. For example Sean (without the síneadh fada) has always been in the top 5 most popular names for boys. Now both spellings are treated as two separate names and thus it falls out of the top 5.
