The Most Popular Baby Names | Did Your Favourite Make the List?
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 2020. 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…..Charlotte has reclaimed its place back at the top of the most popular baby names for girls’ after a one-year hiatus, while Oliver was the most popular baby name for boys in Queensland for the eighth consecutive year in 2020.
The year 2020 was also noteworthy for Maverick making its first entry into the top 100 boys’ names since the RBDM reporting began in 1960, rocketing up the list from No. 169 in 2019 to No. 84 last year. The other big movers among boys’ names were Luka (154th most popular to 95th most popular) and Gabriel (No.139 to No.96).
And there were three girls’ names that made similar leaps – Holly (No.139 to No.79), Billie (No.109 to No.52) and Hallie (No.137 to No.88). Of the 59,914 births registered throughout 2020 in Queensland, there were more than 12,000 different first names recorded.
