Popularity of names in Warsaw, Poland, 2015

Warsaw 2015

According to a press release published on the official City of Warsaw website, Jan and Zofia rounded up the top 10 last year. Jan held his position as the top boy name since the city began publishing annual top 10 baby names in July of 2011 while Zofia held her position as the top girl name for the 3rd year in a row.

Here are the top 10 names in Warsaw last year.

9 Szymon 329 new
10 Mikołaj 320 -1

Comparing the Warsaw statistics from both 2015 and 2014 with the national statistics from 2014, there are some differences I have found:

  • Jan was the top boy name in Warsaw in both of these years while it was ranked 5th nationally in 2014.
  • The same can be said for Zofia, in both 2014 and ‘5, it was the top girl name while it was ranked 5th nationally in 2014.
  • Lena was the top girl name nationally in 2014 but Lena ranked 10th in 2014 and left the top 10 last year.
  • Stanisław was more popular in Warsaw, ranking 8th (7th in 2014), compared to its national ranking of 20th place in 2014.
