Top 200 baby names: what’s trending in Australia right now

Share it

If you’re looking for baby name inspiration, checking out trending options around the world might just give you the perfect name you’re looking for.

And NSW Births, Deaths & Marriages in Australia has just released the most popular 100 baby names for boys and girls in the state for 2021, so here are 200 names for you to ponder.

While the top contenders aren’t a surprise, there are some name trends that we’re excited to see make an appearance.

Quinn made its debut at 93, making it a baby name to watch over the next few years.

Other rising stars include Nora (which went from 153 to 89) and Maxwell (which jumped from 146 to 97).

One trend Australians are choosing is to name their children the shortened version of a name instead of the formal one – for example, Jack, Charlie, Archie, Ella, Evie, Ellie, Frankie, Billie, Millie, and Bella.

But when it comes to the top names, Oliver and Olivia reign supreme …again. Oliver has held the number one place since 2014 and Olivia has appeared in the top five since then.
