Names of the Women Who Will Most Likely Have a Baby in 2024

If your name is on this list, it could mean a baby is on the cards. We’ve predicted the top 40 names of the women who are already pregnant or will become pregnant in the next few months.

How do we know? We don’t know anything for sure (I mean, who does??). But we do have a fun way to guess the names of mums welcoming a baby in 2024.

Here’s how we figured it out:

In Australia, the average age of a mum is 31.1 years. This means that women who are 31 right now have the greatest chance of falling pregnant. 

If you are 31 right now, then you were born in either 1992 or 1993, right?

So, to uncover the names of the women who are 31 this year (and thus most likely to conceive), all we had to do was track down the list of the most popular Australian baby names of 1992 and 1993. Which, thanks to the internet, we did.

Drum roll, please. Here are the names of the women most likely to be welcoming a baby in 2024: 

1. Jessica 21. Elizabeth
2. Sarah 22. Danielle
3. Samantha 23. Amanda
4. Rebecca 24. Hayley
5. Emily 25. Natasha
6. Emma 26. Chloe
7. Lauren 27. Cassandra
8. Stephanie 28. Sophie
9. Amy 29. Brooke
10. Laura 30. Ashley
11. Hannah 31. Caitlin
12. Rachel 32. Michelle
13. Ashleigh 33. Megan
14. Georgia 34. Lisa
15. Nicole 35. Olivia
16. Kate 36. Jade
17. Alexandra 37. Taylor
18. Brittany 38. Kayla
19. Melissa 39. Erin
20. Natalie 40. Courtney
