The most popular Victorian baby boys and girls names have been revealed – with Oliver and Olivia once again topping the list.
According to the Births, Deaths and Marriages Register, there were 419 Olivia’s born in 2019 and 537 Olivers born.
Both choices have been high on the list for the past decade.
Charlotte, Mia and Amelia continue to be popular girls’ names for the ninth consecutive year in a row, while Jack, William and Noah have continued to place in the top five baby names for boys since 2014.
Acting Attorney-General Ben Carroll said choosing a name can be tricky.
“The birth of a baby is a wonderful and special time for parents—but settling on what little bub will be named is not always an easy decision,” he said.
“It’s always fascinating to learn why parents have chosen a particular name for their child, whether it is because they simply like the name, or because it has cultural or significant family ties.”
All births in Victoria must be registered with Births, Deaths and Marriages, which can now be done online at www.bdm.vic.gov.au.
