ARTHUR and Willow were Jersey’s most popular baby names last year.
The Superintendent Registrar has published her annual statement for 2022, which provides insights into key life events of Islanders including births, deaths, marriages and civil partnerships.
Arthur was the most popular baby name for a boy for the second consecutive year, while Willow became the most popular name for a girl.
Meanwhile, Aria and Florence entered the top-ten most popular names for girls for the first time and Luca, Theodore, Frederick, Finn and Albert were new arrivals for boys.
The number of babies born in 2022 was 835 – the lowest level recorded since the 1970s, but the number of deaths registered in Jersey last year was the highest since 1995 at 874.
Last year also saw the number of marriages remain at broadly the same level as 2021, with 439 couples tying the knot.
Superintendent Registrar Claire Follain said: ‘This latest report … provides us with an interesting indication of social and lifestyle trends and changes in Jersey which are very much in line with the other Channel Islands and the United Kingdom.’
