For the second year running, the names Emma (girls) and Daan (boys) have been the most popular names given to newborns in the Netherlands.

Popular girls’ names were Emma, Sophie, Julia, Anna and Lisa.

Popular boys’ names were Daan, Bram, Sem, Lucas and Milan.

The Telegraaf got these lists from Sociale Verzekeringsbank (SVB), which manages child support in the Netherlands. Last year 86,000 girls and 90,000 boys were born in the Netherlands.
