There’s something super exciting about the release of the ‘Top 100’ baby names each year.
It’s a look at what’s popular socially and culturally. It’s also a sneaky insight into exactly how many other Ollies or Livis will be in your kids classes in the years to come. Yikes!
The 10 most popular baby names in Australia for 2017 is a mixing pot of mostly traditional with a smattering of modern monikers thrown in. Some of the more popular baby names of previous years have finally dropped from the top 10 and there’s a few surprising newcomers.
50 Most Popular Girls’ Names
Charlotte and Olivia both keep their first and second places on the list from last year. If you want something unusual these are NOT for you.
It’s finally time to wave goodbye to Ella and Sophie from the top 10 faves for girls, with Evie and Isla taking their well-used place.
Overall? The top 50 names in Australia for girls are traditional, pretty and feminine.
50 Most Popular Boys’ Names
In short, tradition still rules when it comes to our fave boy names. The five most popular names for boys haven’t changed since 2013, with Oliver, William, Jack, Noah and Thomas still ruling the baby name roost.
Then comes James, Ethan, Lucas and Lachlan, in the same spots as previous years. The only change? Henry has swooped in and secured number 10, bumping Liam down to unlucky 13th place. And there’s a bit of Yankee influence creeping in too, with Hudson, Cooper and Mason all making an appearance on the list.
If you don’t want your babe to be Jack-B, Ethan Number Two or Noah-R it’s time to look outside the top 10 and shake it up mumma…
