Names that were most often given to Slovak girls in 2020 are Ema, Sofia and Nina. For boys, it is Jakub, Samuel and Michal.

While Jakub defended its position from the last year, Ema defeated last year’s winner Sofia. The names Tamara, Laura and Michaela were removed from top 10 for girls. Boy names remained the same but their position changed.

These names have been popular in Slovakia for several years now. However, in the whole Slovak population, the names Peter, Ján and Jozef are most popular. Among women, the most popular are Mária, Anna and Zuzana.

As in the previous years, there have also been babies given unusual names. For girls these included Hermiona, Šeherezáda, Kleopatra, Andromeda, Perpetua, Ariel, Fabiola and Infinity. For Boys Achille, Kassandros, Melody, Mustafa, Neymar, Rolex, but also Vladan and Vieroslav were chosen.
