Most Popular Spanish Baby Names
The most popular Spanish baby names have been revealed by Spain’s national statistics office, with parents choosing more traditional names over modern monikers.
Spain’s national statistics office (INE) has released a list of the 100 most popular baby names in 2013 (the most up to date data) and the trend is still very much geared towards the traditional.
The information, released on Wednesday, showed the most popular names of the 425,390 births registered in Spain in 2013.
Apart from María, religious names are conspicuous in their absence from the top ten – popular names for babies born in the 1950s and 1960s included María Jesús (Mary Jesus), María Concepción (Mary Conception) and Encarnación (Incarnation). Similarly the once popular male name Jesús does not appear on the list.
This year’s Spanish Eurovision hopeful, Edurne Garcia, has the most common Spanish surname.
The figures also revealed the most common names in Spain across all ages.
