The NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages has released the top 100 baby names list for 2018.
Top 10 baby names of 2018
The top 10 hasn’t changed a lot in the past decade. There were only two newcomers in 2018 – Liam nudging out Henry which has slipped to 12th spot for boys and Harper ousting Zoe which dropped to 13th place for girls.
Attorney General Mark Speakman said the baby name list provides an interesting insight into families and communities across NSW.
“While traditional names dominate the top 10, we have seen a significant increase in the popularity of Muhammad (63rd in 2017 to 24th in 2018) and Ali (64th in 2017 to 41st in 2018) reflecting the diversity of our state,” Mr Speakman said.
A final list of the top 100 baby names will be released by April 2019.
