Top Baby Names in Scotland 2018
The top baby names in Scotland for 2018 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 Isla, Sophie, Amelia, and Ava. Along with Jack, Scotland’s top boy names include Oliver, James, Logan, and Noah.
It’s not all similarities, though. Harris, Alfie, Orla, and Imogen are all among Scotland’s top names, but did not make it into the US Top 1000 for 2018.
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.
