The Identity Malta Agency has just disclosed some super interesting statistics about Malta’s most popular baby names during the year of 2021.
Turns out that, out of a total of 4,164 babies born last year, Matteo, Luca, and Noah were the most common male names, whilst Emma, Mia, and Ella were the most common female names.
2021 also saw the country introduce Maltese letters in official documents. This amendment encouraged loads of parents to give their new-borns traditional Maltese names.
In fact, Ġuże, Ġanni, Eliża and Luċija were the most common Maltese baby names this past year.
Out of the 4,164 babies born in 2021, 2,123 were boys whilst 2,040 were girls. One baby was registered as gender neutral.
Not only did Identity Malta Agency reveal statistics about baby names but it also released some compelling figures about Maltese marriages.
When it came to marriages and weddings officiated in 2021, a total of 986 civil marriages were registered whilst 1,010 couples were married via religious means.
Last year, only a total of 149 weddings were postponed as opposed to 2020’s statistics which involved 381 postponed weddings.
