The Nordic Names Revolution is coming. In the last few years, we’ve seen names such as Elsa and Anna take over the charts in Denmark and Norway. Now it’s time for our Finnish friends to indulge in some name-picking fun too! The latest research from Finland’s National Bureau of Statistics has shown that there are now more children named Elsa than Maria:

Elsa – 12,847

Maria – 11,642

There are plenty of other interesting findings in the data. The top 20 names for girls include such gems as Wilma, Tuuli and Eevi. For boys it’s Esko, Roope and Lauri! We have to agree that these Nordic baby names are much more appealing than some of the American monikers we’ve been seeing lately like Harley Quinn or Khaleesi.

The trend is happening all across Europe with places such as Sweden experiencing a resurgence in popularity too – “In 2015 there were 38 babies named Elsa (in England), compared to just five called Amelia.”

We predict this revolution will continue until one day soon every little Finn has an Anna or Wilhelm on their birth certificate..or at least Alfons or Selma.
