The Superintendent Registrar has published her annual statement for 2022, which provides insights into key life events of Islanders including births, deaths, marriages, and civil partnerships. 

The most popular baby name for boys was Arthur for the second consecutive year with Willow being the most popular name for girls. Aria and Florence entered the top ten most popular baby names for girls for the first time in 2022 and Luca, Theodore, Frederick, Finn and Albert were new arrivals for boys. 

Last year saw the number of marriages remain at broadly the same level as 2021 with 439 taking place. The number of babies born in 2022 was 835 which is the lowest level recorded since the 1970s. The number of deaths registered in Jersey in 2022 was at its highest since 1995 at 874. 

Superintendent Registrar comment

Superintendent Registrar, Claire Follain, said: "This latest report gives us insight to key life events across our Island and provides us with an interesting indication of social and lifestyle trends and changes in Jersey which are very much in line with the other Chanell Islands and the United Kingdom.”
