Most Popular Baby Names: Oliver and Amelia are the most popular baby names

Amelia and Oliver were the most popular baby names in Queensland in 2022, with the latter celebrating its tenth year at the top.

Attorney General Shannon Fentiman confirmed the trend Saturday after the moniker Jack took over in 2013.

In the girls’ category, Amelia prevailed against strong competitors such as Charlotte, Isla and Olivia.

“It’s fascinating to see the different names that have shifted in popularity over the past few years and the unpredictability of the results, particularly for girls’ names,” Ms Fentiman said.

According to the Queensland Birth, Death and Marriage Registry, the state recorded 62,740 births in 2022.

“Charlotte, Isla and Olivia continue to enjoy popularity in the top 4 girl names because they haven’t been in the budget for the past decade,” Ms. Fentiman said.

“Oliver still holds the lead – now for the tenth straight year – with another commanding lead since he passed Jack in 2013,” she said.

“Boy names have been remarkably stable in recent years.”

Ms Fentiman said there was only one new entry for boys’ names, with Luca rising from 18th to 10th to replace Elijah, who fell to 12th.

“Personally, it’s a bit sad that Shannon is still outside the top 100, but you can forgive me for being a little biased,” said Ms. Fentiman.

For girls, the top 10 baby names for 2022 were: Amelia, Charlotte, Isla, Olivia, Ava, Mia, Willow, Matilda, Lily, and Ella.

For the boys the list was: Oliver, Noah, William, Hudson, Henry, Theodore, Leo, Charlie, Jack and Luca.

For the Olivers in Australia, the weekend’s announcement confirms their nationwide popularity.

Last year it was the most popular boy name in every state but at the high end where it was surpassed by Charlie.
