Australia Top Baby Names 2022

top names 2022 australia

Australians have been pretty consistent with how we are naming our babies in recent years, with very little change to the top 10 baby names in the last few years. However, there are some changing naming trends in Australia.

In the top spots, Oliver for the boys has been consistently the most popular boys’ name since 2013.

With Isla taking the lead for the girls means Charlotte has been knocked out of the first position for the first time since 2015.

In fact in 2015, when Charlotte momentarily dipped to the second position – Isla was sitting at number 15. Which is a solid rise in popularity over the last 7 years! Though I’m predicting in 2023 Charlotte will be back to the top position (I will be checking back on this to see if I’m right!) Or maybe this is a sign of change?

Joining the top 100 Girl Names Australia 2022 are Zoey (Position 100), Heidi (97), Nora (96), Indiana (93), Lyla (92) and Riley (86).

For the boys the new additions to the top 100 boys name list are Elias (position 99), Nicholas (96) and Miles (89).

The biggest position jump for the girls is Pippa (+26 from position 100 to 76), Delilah (+25) and Eden (+18) And for the boys River (+30) Luka (+24) and Ezra (+24)

Girls’ names that are dropping in popularity from 2021 to 2022 are Jasmine (-22) Rosie (-18) and Peyton (-14). And boys’ Connor (-35) Ashton (-22) and Jayden (-20)
