We love creating these lists and hope you find them useful, our other name posts are as follows – gender neutral names, nature inspired names, flower inspired names, animal inspired baby names and baby names inspired by places.
According to McCrindle The British Royal Family continue to capture the hearts of Australians. From the moment Kate Middleton stepped out of the carriage on her wedding day onto the steps of Westminster Abbey, the ‘Kate effect’ was born.
Beyond Kate, the extended royal family are not just influencing the fashion and hairstyle choices of modern Australians, but also their choice of baby names.
Prince George (born 2013) and Princess Charlotte (born 2015) have significantly contributed to the popularity of these
names. In the five years since Prince George was born, George’s rank in the baby name list jumped 37 places. George now sits at 33rd position.
When Princess Charlotte was born in 2015, her name overtook Olivia as the most popular baby name, it has remained
undefeated to this day.
Unsurprisingly, since the birth of Prince Louis in 2018, his name has gained a boost in popularity. Louis has jumped 25
places since 2017, now at 48th position.
Similarly, the name Archie has been rising in popularity, and has climbed the ranks by four positions since the Birth of
Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor in May 2019.
