Popular Names In NSW

It looks like the O’s are in!

Olivia has topped the chart for the most popular girls name in NSW, whereas Oliver has taken out the boys list!

And royal monikers like William and Charlotte both came in second place. Names like Benjamin, Henry, Ava, Ruby and Evelyn have also made it onto the list.

Meanwhile, Harper as well as Lachlan are featured in the top 20 for the state.

“Names sit around the trend of what is happening with celebrities at the time,” Births, Deaths and Marriages’ registrar Amanda Ianna told ABC.

“Harper is a good example: Victoria and David Beckham, Dave Grohl and Lisa Marie Presley all named their child Harper.”

Meanwhile, Ben Finn of the Births, Deaths and Marriages NSW says parents are now giving their kids informal names like Harry, Archie, Albie and Sonny, which used to be nicknames in the past for Henry, Archibald, Albert and Salvatore.
