go to full release

Jack and Emily remain the most popular babies’ names registered in 2015.  Jack retains the top position it has held every year since 2007 and Emily has retained the number one spot that it first claimed in 2011.  See tables 1 and 2.

The top five boys’ names (Jack, James, Daniel, Conor and Sean) have been the top five since 2007 with slight changes to their order.   Indeed, four of the top five boys’ names (Jack, Sean, Conor and James) have been in the top five since 1998.  This is the fifth consecutive year that Emily has been the most popular name chosen for girls.  Emma, Ava, Sophie and Amelia were the next most frequently chosen names to make it to the top five most popular names for girls in 2015.  See table 1.

George was the only first time entry to the top 100 for boys, rising 13 places, from 103rd in 2014 to 90th in 2015.  For the second year in a row Ollie was the boys' name rising most in popularity.  It increased 21 places from 87th place in 2014 to 66th place in 2015.   See tables 1 and 5.

There were three first time entrants to the top 100 for girls:  Annabelle, Mila and Rosie.  Mila was also the girls' name rising most in popularity, up 54 places from 142nd place in 2014 to 88th place in 2015. See tables 1 and 5.

As in previous years, the tables show that girls are given a wider variety of names than boys with 4,487 girls’ names registered compared to 3,475 boys’ names.  Despite the greater number of male births, a smaller range of names were used for boys than for girls. 

In most areas of the country one of the top five boys’ names took the number one spot. 

For boys, eight areas favoured names outside of the top five for boys in 2015.  In Galway City, Adam was the most popular boy's name while Charlie was the most popular boy’s name registered in Kilkenny and in Wexford.  In Laois and Longford, Michael and Patrick respectively got the number one spot.  In Waterford City, Daniel, Harry, Luke, Oisin and Oliver all shared the top position.  Similarly, in South Tipperary Darragh and Harry along with Jack were the most favoured names.  In Roscommon, Thomas along with Jack proved most popular.  See table 8(a).

For girls, there were only seven areas in 2015 where the number one name was not one of the top five.  Ella was the favourite in Roscommon.  Grace was the most popular in Louth and South Tipperary.  In Galway City, Lauren was the most popular name.  Leah was the name most favoured in Waterford City while Molly was the most popular in Cavan.   In Limerick County, Anna, Emily, Grace and Mia all shared the top position.  See table 8(b).

Some of the less common girls' names registered in 2015 and not included in the top 100 names were Paris, Nelly, Dakota, Kim, Pixie and Sabina.   Some of the less popular boys' names registered  in 2015 were Barra, Pauric, Zayn, Gus, Romeo and Otis.

Where both parents were stated as being Irish nationals, Jack was the top ranked name for boys.  Jack was also the most popular choice with parents of UK nationality while Noah was the most popular boy’s name chosen by parents from the EU15 (excl. Irl & UK).  David was the name chosen most often by parents from the EU28 excl. EU15.  Parents from nations outside the EU made Muhammad the highest ranked name of baby boys registered in Ireland in 2015.  See table 9.

For girls where both parents were Irish nationals, Emily was the most popular name.  Isla and Chloe were the names most often chosen by parents of UK nationality.  Chloe along with Emma ranked first with parents of the EU15 (excl. Irl & UK) and Julia took the top spot with parents of the EU 28 excl. EU15 countries.  Parents from outside the EU28, made Fatima the name that ranked highest of baby girls registered in Ireland in 2015.  See table 9.

Surname

An analysis of the top ten most popular surnames of babies' registered in 2015 is also included in this publication.  There were 65,909 live births registered in 2015.  Of these, there were 21,264 unique surnames.  These unique surnames include some double barrelled surnames e.g. O’Brien-Murphy.  The top 10 most popular surnames account for 7.4% (or 4,862) of the 65,909 births registered in 2015.  The surname ‘Murphy’ accounted for over 1.1% ( 752 births) while ‘Kelly’ accounts for 1.0% or 633 births. See table 10.

 

John and Mary the most popular names in 1965

An analysis was done of the baby names registered fifty years earlier in 1965. There were 3,360 boys whose registered name was John in 1965 which made it the most popular name for boys.  The name John was ranked number 28 in popularity in 2015 when 266 baby boys were so named.  See tables 11 and 12.

The top five boys’ names in 1965 were, in order, John, Patrick, Michael, James and Thomas.  Of these five names only James was in the top five names registered for boys fifty years later in 2015.   See table 11.

While 1,464 baby boys were named James in 1965 there was less than half of that number (697) named James in 2015.  The names  Adam, Jack, Luke, Noah or Charlie did not appear anywhere on the top 100 list of male baby names in 1965.  However, Michael, Daniel, Sean, and Conor were in the top 100 most popular names in 1965.   

For girls, Mary was the name of choice for 3,229 parents for their newborn daughters in 1965 making it the most popular name for girls born that year.  It was also still among the top 100 names (ranked 74) for baby girls born in Ireland in 2015 when 91 newborn girls were named Mary.  See tables 11 and 12.

The top five girls’ names in 1965 were Mary, Margaret, Catherine, Anne and Ann.  None of these names featured in the top five names registered for baby girls in 2015.  Mary is the only name out of the top five in 1965 that features in the top 100 names for girls in 2015.  See table 11.

None of the top 10 most popular names for girls' in 2015 appeared anywhere in the top 100 girls' names in 1965.

As in 2015, the data for 1965 shows that girls were given a wider variety of names than boys.  However, the range of names for both boys and girls were not as varied in 1965 in comparison to 2015.  There were 1,158 girls’ names registered in 1965 (versus 4,487 in 2015) and 744 boys’ names (as against 3,475 in 2015).

Background Notes

Source

These results are based on an analysis of the first names recorded on birth returns for registration and vital statistics, begun by the CSO in 1998. All birth notifications in 2015 included the baby’s first name when the statistical return was sent to the CSO. 1963, 1964 and 1965 are  the first years prior to 1998 for which an analysis of names are available. Data for boys' names is available for the intervening years (1966 to 1997 inclusive) on our statbank. It is hoped to have the corresponding data for the girls' names on the statbank in the near future.

Information recorded

Only the first name was used for this analysis. Babies’ surnames and additional forenames were not extracted by the CSO. 

Spellings and variants

Different spellings of a name have been treated as separate names. For example, while there were 299 boys named Cillian, another 73 had the alternate spelling Killian. Similarly, if you combine the number of girls named Hannah (338) and Hanna (76) then it becomes the 4th most popular name for girls in 2015. Variants of names and abbreviations have also been treated as separate names. For example, Jack, Sean and John account between them for 1,548 boys. These were counted as separate names and rank first, fifth and twenty-eighth respectively. If treated as variants of John, it would rank as the most popular boys’ name. Names containing accents have been recorded without those accents e.g. Seán was recorded as Sean.

Ranking

Names of equal rank have been placed in alphabetical order in Table 1.
