Top Baby Names in Scotland 2019
The top baby names in Scotland for 2019 are Olivia and Jack.
Names in the Scottish Top 100 have a lot of overlap with the US Top 100. Along with Olivia, the top girl names in Scotland include Emily, Isla, Sophie, and Ella. Along with Jack, Scotland’s top boy names include Oliver, James, Charlie, and Harris.
It’s not all similarities, though. Angus, Alfie, Orla, and Imogen are all among Scotland’s top names, but did not make it into the most recent US Top 1000.
Quintessentially Scottish names make the list as well, such as Eilidh, the Gaelic variation of Helen. Struan, a name with Gaelic origins meaning “stream,” is the Scottish answer to America’s white-hot name River.
Other unique names that rank among Scotland’s Top 100 include Iona, Niamh, and Georgie for girls, and Hamish, Fraser, and Innes for boys.
