Choosing a name for a little bundle of joy, how hard can it be right? Speaking from experience it can be excruciatingly hard. Trying to choose a name for a person you haven’t even met yet can be a daunting task. The Queensland Registry of Births, Deaths, and Marriages (RBDM) has just shared its annual list of the most popular baby names for 2021. Perhaps you’ll find one you like or if you already have kids, you can smugly celebrate if your child’s name made the list.

Drum roll, please…..Isla is the new queen of baby girl names in Queensland after overtaking long-running favourite Charlotte in 2021, while Oliver was the most popular baby name for boys in Queensland for the nineth consecutive year in 2021.

Queensland Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages (RBDM) data showed that Henry displaced Jack in third place, while Charlie replaced Thomas in the only change to the boys’ top 10. Matilda and Lily were newcomers to the girls’ top 10, replacing Sophie and Harper. Maverick’s first ever foray into the top 100 boys’ names in 2020 was short-lived. 

First time entrants to the top 100 boys’ names in 2021 included Koa (a name of Hawaiian origin meaning brave, bold, fearless and valiant) and Huxley (from old English origins), while Octavia entered the top 100 girls’ names for the first time in RBDM’s records, which date back to 1960.
