It’s the moment we’ve been waiting for – trend-watchers McCrindle have released their annual report detailing baby name patterns in Australia.
They’ve revealed the official top 100 names of 2019, as well as some trends that have developed in the past year or so.
As McCrindle writes in their report: “A name today is more than what teachers will call you at school. It is your digital real estate in an increasingly technological world.”
Oh, the pressure!
In 2018, just over 300,000 babies were born in Australia. And many parents weren’t massively creative – around one in 10 babies were given a name that features in the top 10 name lists.
Of course, the names featured at the top of the charts are popular for a reason – they are great names.
But if you’re looking for a cute name that isn’t as common, this report has some interesting findings – including names that have dropped out of the top 100. These are names that people have heard of and know how to spell, but you’re guaranteed there won’t be a classroom full of kids with that name either.
The report also identified baby names that still appear in the top 100 but people aren’t using as much anymore.
And because we aren’t monsters, here is the full top 100 baby names for boys and girls in Australia in 2019.
