Congratulations are in order for Jess, Bec and Mel! These are three of the names of women most likely to welcome a baby into the world in 2017. Come and have a look at the other 27 names that make the list.
Technology allows us to connect to the past, present and even predict the future like nothing else. And here’s the proof.
By simply analysing data from the past compared to the most up-to-date statistics on the average age of Australian mums, we are able to determine the names of the women most likely to fall pregnant next year.
Here’s what we mean.
The average Aussie mum, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, is 30.1 years of age, which means that women born in 1987 and 1988 are the ones most likely to have a baby next year. With that in mind, we went to the Australian Birth, Deaths and Marriages records of the past to determine the most popular girls’ names of these years. And, voila!
Next Year’s Class of Mums
