Top 100 Latvian Names of Past 100 Years
Top 100 reflects the most popular names (ranks from 1 to 100) of boys and girls born during the past 100 years. If a name is not in the Top, none of the regions of Latvia has it among one hundred the most popular.
The Top has been developed by the Central Statistical Bureau (CSB) based on the data on children names registered by the Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs.
The Top has six breakdowns:
- Latvia – general ranking that covers all person (born in Latvia and abroad) registered with the Population Register;
- Riga, Pierīga, Vidzeme, Kurzeme, Latgale – ranking in each statistical region;
- Born abroad – ranking of the persons born abroad and recorded in the Population Register.
The top was inspired by the visualisation "Baby names since 1904: how has your performed?" of the Office for National Statistics of the UK.
