It’s official: Australia really likes the royals.
New government data has revealed that the most popular girl’s name for 2016 in Australia was Charlotte, just like the youngest British Princess. Traditional names Mia, Grace, Sophie and Olivia also made the top 10.
When it came to boys, topping the list for the second year in a row was Oliver, while another well-known royal moniker, William, came in second. Classic choices Thomas, Jack and James closely followed.
The data - which comes from the state departments of Births, Deaths and Marriages - included a few unusual additions in the top 100 for both sexes.
Girls name, Peyton, was listed at 61 and Naveah (which is heaven spelt backwards) came in at number 99.
Boy's names Arlo, Chase, Hunter, Jett and Bentley also rounded out the most-picked list.
