The regal Charlotte and the impish Oliver take the crowns for most popular Australian baby names in 2015.

Jack has remained steady in a top two position for eight of the last 10 years, dropping to number three for both 2014 and 2015.

Oliver made his debut in the top 10 in 2008 and climbed the ladder steadily to take first place for the first time in 2014 and now also in 2015.

In fact the top five most popular names for boys have remained the same for the last two years in a row, which is a first for names of either gender in the last decade.


Lachlan makes a return to the national boys top ten after dipping out briefly last year. It's interesting to note that Alexander has disappeared once more from the top ten, after making his debut for the first time this decade in last year's polls.

The top ten for boys has been pretty stable these past two years, with former mainstay Cooper, absent since 2013.


Ella has made a triumphant return to the top girls' names, slipping in to claim tenth place.

Ella had been notably absent from the top ten for three years running and we were beginning to think we had seen the last of her reign.

While Ruby came from nowhere in 2010 to take the number one spot, this year she has dropped out of the top ten altogether. It remains to be seen if her five year stint was a flash-in-the-pan, or if she's on temporary hiatus.

The other girl names in the national top ten (Olivia, Amelia, Ava, Mia, Chloe, Emily, Sophie and Grace) are all stalwarts of the top ten and movements among them have been minimal.
