Swiss first names * The most popular first names in Switzerland
The Federal Statistical Office (FSO) evaluates the first names of children born in Switzerland. These first names are sent to the FSO every year by the registry offices in their area. In 2019, there were 86,172 births in Switzerland. The front runners in 2019 were Mia, Emma and Sofia, the front runners Liam, Noah and Matteo.
In terms of language regions, Mia was the most popular female first name in German-speaking Switzerland in 2019. Among the boys, Noah took first place. Emma has been number 1 in French-speaking Switzerland since 2004. As in the previous year, Liam was at the top of the boys’ category in 2019. In the Italian part of Switzerland, Leonardo and Sofia again took the top positions. In the Romance-speaking region, the distribution of first names fluctuates greatly from one year to the next due to the low number of births; the number of babies is too small for a meaningful ranking list.
Different spellings were consistently counted as separate first names.
