There are some names that we have seen at the top of the baby name lists in NSW each year for the last ten years.
The NSW Registry of Births, Deaths & Marriages has revealed two names that have been the most popular in the state for the fifth time since 2010.
Find out what the names are below….
These are the most popular names of the decade
The names that are so popular are: Oliver and Charlotte. (As if you didn’t already know this already!)
Oliver has topped the lists every year since 2014, while Charlotte was the number one girl name in 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2018.
“We live in a world that’s constantly changing, but when it comes to baby names many parents are playing it safe and sticking with centuries-old favourites,”Attorney General Mark Speakman said in a statement.
“Despite Game of Thrones frenzy reaching fever pitch, names like Daenerys, Arya, Tyrion and even the once ubiquitous John are nowhere to be seen in the NSW Registry of Births Deaths & Marriages top 100 baby names for 2018.”
498 newborns were named Charlotte in NSW last year followed by Amelia, Olivia, Mia and Ava.
“Princess Charlotte may be fourth in line for the throne, but the name is still number one for girls in NSW, beating Amelia and Olivia to the top spot,” added Speakman.
Meanwhile, the most popular boy names in the state last year were Noah and Oliver, in tied first place. 321 newborns were given these names. This was followed by Lucas and Jack.
