Frequency of Name Use by Time Period for Canada

A student here is looking for data on Given names and Surnames. He would like to have time series data showing the name's usage in Canada, from 1935 on to 2008 - preferably, annually. So, for example, how many children were born and given the name "Floyd" for each year. How many children were born whose surname was "Smith" ...

Any ideas?


I have received confirmation from the appropriate divisions that this type of information is not available through Statistics Canada.

My suggestion would be to contact the vital statistics offices of the individual provinces and territories.
