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!

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

“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.
