In the results for the whole country, our Blue Mountains girls favourite, Amelia, came third. Oliver, our Blue Mountains boys favourite, also topped the Australian charts at number 1, with a whopping 641 boys named Oliver Australia wide! Charlotte was the overall Aussie favourite with 504 girls named Charlotte last year. 

Freya and Patrick were our Blue Mountains most intriguing results. They came 8th in popularity in our region but 49th and 72nd respectively in Australia. Layla, Abigail, Audrey and Lily for the girls and Charlie, Harrison and Sebastian for the boys were also Blue Mountains favourites that did not compare closely with the national rankings. Interestingly, Mia and William were much more popular nationally than for us in the Blue Mountains.

Looking at Australian favourite baby names, Oliver and Charlotte have topped the charts for three years in a row now! It would be a seven year streak with Oliver and Charlotte as the top names except Olivia snuck in as the top girls name for a couple of years.

Baby Name Rules in Australia

Just remember, that there are rules when you are registering a name in Australia. It cannot be more than 50 characters for each part of the name, include numbers or symbols that can’t be easily said, contain characters not found in English, or include an official royal rank, such as Queen. You cannot register a name that includes punctuation within the name but a hyphen and an apostrophe are often ok! So La-La might get the thumbs up! You may like to refer to the full guidelines here
