Essential Baby has compiled and churned out the numbers to bring you the list of Australia's most popular baby names in 2013. 

Parents of boys and girls all stuck to traditional favourites last year, with the top 10 lists of each gender changing little from the previous 12 months.

However, William did overtake Jack as the number one name for baby boys - perhaps the future King of England becoming a father for the first time last year added to the appeal of the royal moniker.

When it comes to girls, Charlotte remains the most popular name for the second year running, and Ruby claims a top two ranking for the fourth year in a row.
