Top Baby Names in Norway 2021

The most popular baby names in Norway for 2021 are Nora and Noah.

Along with Nora, other top girl names in Norway include Emma, Sofie, Olivia, and Ella. Along with Noah, other popular names for boys in Norway include Oskar, Oliver, Lucas, and Isak.

Norway's name rankings combine spellings for names that sound the same. So, for example, Noah also includes a minority of boys named Noa, and Nora also includes girls named Norah.

The letter C was not introduced into the Norwegian alphabet until later, so relatively few names in Norway’s Top 50 include it — only Lucas, Victoria, and Victor. Instead, many names in which you’d traditionally see a C are spelled with a K instead, such as Oskar, Aksel, and Kasper.

Popular Scandinavian names in Norway include Ingrid, Hedda, and Tuva for girls, and Olav, Gustav, and Håkon for boys. Other Norwegian names with crossover potential include Linnea, Sigrid, Emil, and Iver.
