Popular Swedish Names for Girls and Boys in 2017

If you have met a couple of Swedish people before, you might have noticed that the Swedish names are different from names in other countries, and partly even rather extraordinary. For example, common names for girls in Sweden can be Linnéa, Ebba or Tove. Swedish boys can be called Albin, Sixten or Åke. Some names may sound very beautiful, some may sound rather weird for non-Swedes.
