Ontario’s Top Children’s Names for 2010


The Ontario Register General puts together the annual list of baby names from registered births in the Province.

The Top Ten (10) Baby Names are as follows:


  • Ethan – the most popular name for baby boys for the third year in a row
  • Jacob
  • Matthew
  • Nathan
  • Joshua
  • Girls

  • Olivia
  • Emma
  • Ava
  • Emily
  • Isabella
  • The Province is making it easier for parents to register their newborn’s birth and name online from the comfort of home.  Parents can now apply for a birth certificate, a Social Insurance Number and Canada Child Benefits, including the Ontario Child Benefit, using Ontario’s online Newborn Registration Service. That’s four separate applications now combined into one easy-to-use online process.

    Ontario also offers a service guarantee for birth certificates ordered online – delivered in 15 business days, or it’s free.  Since the service guarantee began in 2005, more than 99.8% have been delivered on time.

    This service guarantee and expanded online service is part of the Open Ontario plan to help make services for families faster, friendlier and easier to access.

    • The Ontario Registrar General compiles annual lists of given baby names from registered births in the province.
    • More than 100,000 parents in the province have used the online service since it was launched in 2009.
    • Parents have up to one year to register a child’s birth.
    • The Ontario Child Benefit provides up to $1,100 per child per year to over one million children making life a little easier for their families.
