Which are the most popular names in your country?

 

Some statistics says that in Serbia the most popular given names for babies are Nikola (male) and Milica (female).

Has Milica always been popular or was there a sudden rise in Milica's numbers in 2012-2013? :p 

 

I know we have yearly statistics that show how many times literally every name has been given to a child in that year...hold on. I'm guessing Mohammed and all different variations of that name would be pretty high in the list here (top-3/5).

The most popular surnames (family names) are as follows:
