Emily and Jack remain the most popular names on passport applications for infants in Ireland, according to the Passport Service of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Welcoming the new passport holders, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Charlie Flanagan, TD, today said:
“Of the 53,046 passports issued to children under the age of three, 574 went to Jacks and 456 to Emilys. Amelia and Lily entered the top ten names for girls, and while I was disappointed to see Charlie drop two places, I am pleased that it remains in the top ten for boys.
“The names reflect the continued popularity of traditional Irish names, such as Aoife and Oisín, and the vibrant multiculturalism in today’s Ireland, with Zuzanna and Kacper the highest new entries.
