Top 10 baby names in Australia for 2017 have been revealed

Woohoo! We now know what the top baby names in the country are!

Social research site McCrindle has published a report of the top 100 boys and girls names in Australia for 2017.

The top moniker for a boy is Oliver, and Charlotte for a girl. Oliver has hit the top spot for boys for three years in a row now. And Charlotte has been the number one girl name for two years on the trot.

“Around one in ten of Australia’s 300,000 babies born in the last year were given one of the Top 10 baby names. There were 2,145 boys named Oliver and 1,817 girls named Charlotte,” says the official report.

McCrindle suggests celebrity influences – such as Kourtney Kardashian’s daughter Penelope going from 62nd to 54th from last year – have influenced baby names this year, as well as royal monikers, a.k.a. Princess Charlotte and Prince George.

The report says there’s also been a surge of names with a botanic theme, such as Lily, Ivy, Daisy and Olive.

Nourish Your Body In Pregnancy

During pregnancy the nutritional demands on your body are greater in support of the growing baby along with alterations in maternal tissues and metabolism. The requirements of protein and nutrients, particularly folate, iodine, calcium, iron and zinc are higher.

During the second and third trimester additional protein is required for the growth of foetal, placental and maternal tissues, and estimated energy requirements are also higher.

The Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie provides a Good Source of Vitamins & Minerals – providing extra nutrition, including protein, vitamins & minerals for expectant mums

  • Folate – contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy. Consumption of at least 400mcg† per day, at least one month before & three months following conception may reduce the risk of fetal neural tube defects
  • Vitamin B12 – necessary for normal cell division, neurological structure & function, & contributes to normal blood formation, which are important processes during pregnancy
  • Calcium – necessary for normal teeth, bone structure, important for baby’s development
  • Iodine, Phosphorous, Vitamin D & Vitamin B12 – contribute to normal growth & development, including that of the baby
  • Vitamin C, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folate & Iron– contributes to the reduction of tiredness & fatigue, symptoms often experienced by expectant mums
  • Protein – necessary for tissue building & repair, normal growth & development of bone & contributes to the growth of muscle mass
