Olivia and Liam are the most popular names for girls and boys born in Ontario for the second year in a row.

Olivia has been the favourite name for girls since 2008, followed by the same second, third and fourth place names from last year — Emma, Sophia and Ava. Emily joins the ranks to round out the top five.

For boys, Ethan, Jacob and Lucas once again took spots two through four, with Benjamin coming in at five.

According to a press release, the province gives parents up to one year to register their newborn’s birth online.

Through the easy-to-use 4-in-1 Newborn Bundle, they can register their child’s birth and apply for their birth certificate, social insurance number and Canada child benefits, including the Ontario child benefit, in one easy step.

Birth certificates ordered online are guaranteed to be mailed within 15 business days or they’re free.

“Parents can register their newly named babies online from the comfort of their own homes,” said John Milloy, Minister of Government Services, in the press release.

“By making it more convenient for families to access our services, we are helping new parents focus on what’s really important.”
