Each year Service Alberta and Red Tape Reduction, the provincial department responsible for vital statistics, publishes a list of Alberta’s top baby names. The list of the most popular girls' and boys' names is compiled from the birth information provided by parents and registered  by the department for a particular year.

More statistical information about Alberta births, marriages, deaths, stillbirths and legal changes of name can be found on the Open Government portal.
