(x-posted to [livejournal.com profile] baby_names)

Every year, my newspaper has a giant section with all the babies born in the previous year. Since I am insane, I like to use this to compile statistics for the most popular baby names in my area. Note that, firstly, this doesn't represent every single baby born in the area, only those whose parents had the money and/or inclination to do this; and secondly, that this represents only babies born in my particular area: Windsor and Essex County in Southwestern Ontario, Canada.

If you're curious, or want to compare, here are the entries I've made for previous years:

2008

2007

2006


Note: The number in brackets is the total number of babies with that name. I have combined alternate spellings, and listed any alternate spellings below the name, along with the number of babies with that spelling.

There were 687 babies total.
