I wish I could lay down a bet on it in Las Vegas. I think the odds are in favour. I'm predicting there will be a number of young men named Liam marrying young women named Olivia within about 25 years.
You see, there were 84 baby boys named Liam last year in Saskatchewan and 69 baby girls named Olivia. This marks the 9th straight year that Liam was the most popular name for newborn boys and the 2nd consecutive year for Olivia.
Sask Health has released the top 20 baby names for 2018. I like the fact new moms and dads are opting for some more traditional names these days.
Ava, Charlotte, Emily, Grace and Hazel are back in vogue while Jacob, Jack, James and William made the top 20 for boys.
I am alarmed, however, that Robert is not in the top 20. It's such a versatile name. Roberts can be Robertos and Rob'erts, Robs and Robbies and Bobs and Bobbys. We need Bobbys. We have to have Bobbys.
