Jakub was the most popular boys’ name in Slovakia in 2016, followed by Adam. Last year the name Michal was third, but this year Samael was in third position. In the Top 10 are names like Martin, Tomáš, Michal, Filip, Lukáš, Matej and Sebastián. The name Sebastián is a newbie in the Top 10. On the other hand, the name Peter fell off of the chart.
The most favourite among girls is the name Ema, followed by Sofia and Natália. In comparison with last year, names like Katarína, Eliška and Karolína no longer belong to the Top 10. New names in higher positions are Anna, Hana, Kristína and Adela. Other names in the Top 10 are Nina, Viktória, Nela and Laura.
This year names like Armani, Diego, Chanel, Lucas, Anny, Antoine or Boglárka appeared in the register office.
However, what cannot be seen from the Top 10 chart, is that Slavic names were much more popular.
