Top baby names at St. Francis in 2022

January 05, 2023 

According to William Shakespeare (from “Othello”), “Good name in man and woman is the immediate jewel of their souls." Some names are family names, while others are uniquely named to stand out.  Regardless, a name says something about us. 

Below are the top baby boy and baby girl names for deliveries at HSHS St. Francis Hospital in 2022. They are:

  • Boys: Ryker
  • Girls: Eleanor

These names were part of the 191 babies that were delivered by HSHS St. Francis Hospital’s Maternity Center in 2022.

The Family Maternity Center is designated a Silver Safe Sleep Hospital through the Eunice Kennedy Shriver organization and Cribs for Kids Program and recognized by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois with a Blue Distinction® Centers (BDC) for Maternity Care designation, as part of the Blue Distinction Specialty Care program. It is also a Certified Baby-Friendly Hospital by the WHO and UNICEF, one of only approximately 600 designated hospitals in the US. The initiative encourages and recognizes hospitals and birthing centers that offer an optimal level of care for breastfeeding mothers and their babies.

For those expecting in 2023, St. Francis offers a wide range of services for mothers and infants, and the 2023 prenatal class schedule is now available here
