Charlotte and Oliver reign supreme for the fourth year running as the most popular baby names in Queensland.

Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Yvette D’Ath said the most popular baby names lodged through the Queensland Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages had been remarkably consistent since 2015.

“In fact, while Charlotte has been the most popular girl’s name for the past four years, you would have to go back to 2011 for Oliver not to be top,” Mrs D’Ath said.

“Back then Jack was the most popular name for boys, before being replaced by Oliver.”

Mrs D’Ath said the top ten names had also been consistent with only one new girl’s name making the list, while there were two new boy’s names.

“Willow was the new entry for girls, knocking Ivy out of the top ten,” she said.

“And Leo, Archer and Theodore joined the most popular ranks for boys, replacing Hudson, James and Hunter.”

Ava was the second most popular girl’s name, up from third last year, and William was again the second most popular boy’s name, a place it has held since 2013.

“It is interesting to see how the trends in baby names change over the years,” she said.

“People are often curious about what baby names are currently trending and I look forward to what 2019 will bring.”
