For another year, Liam and Emma remain at the top of the list of boy and girl baby names, the Saskatchewan government says.

The 2013 report of top 20 names bears a number of similarities to the previous year's list, with many carry-overs.

We'd love to showcase your images. If you have a baby or toddler named Emma or Liam (or both!), send them in to sasknews@cbc.ca.

The 92 Liams and 80 Emmas who came into the world last year were No. 1 on their respective lists.

However, 2012's No. 2 picks for boy and girls — Ethan and Olivia — slipped in popularity.

Among the names that are new to the top 20 boys (compared to 2012) are Jaxon, Jase and Jace.

The 43 Zoeys born put that name in the top 20 after being absent from the list in 2012.

There were 15,222 live births registered in Saskatchewan in 2013, up from 15,046 in 2012.

Here are the complete lists:
