Most common names for girls in Sweden in 2015

All names in the list were given in 2015 and ranked according to the amount of female Swedes carrying each name as their first name. The most popular first name for girls in 2015 is Elsa. Yes, just like the name the character in the Disney movie Frozen. 977 little Swedish baby birls have been called that name.

Similar names have been listed under the more common of the variations. For example, more girls are named Ester than Esther (with an “h”), so the amount of Esthers is added to the amount of the more common Ester without an “h”.
