Popular baby names for 2022

Australia’s top 200 baby names for 2022 have just been revealed, and whilst the top boys’ name has held onto its number one ranking, the crown has been passed onto a new name for the girls. This is the first time there’s been a new top girls name since 2015 we might add.

Unique baby names, popular baby names, and nicknames as first names, all make an appearance in this year’s McCrindle most popular baby names list for 2022. At the top, we have Oliver (1) and a new top place Isla (1).

Botanical names still bring the goods

Australia’s obsession with florals and nature continues with Willow (8.), Lily (13.), Ivy (14.), Violet (28.), Daisy (34.), Luna (37.), Poppy (38.), Kai (40.), Aurora (45.), Stella (58.), River (60.), Olive (64.), Summer (67.), Bodhi (70.) and Delilah (71.) firmly cultivating top 100 spots.

Colours are still a source of inspiration, with Ruby (21.), Hazel (24.), Scarlett (30.) and Rose (81.) trending strong.

Same-same but different

The Top 200 most popular baby names for 2022 feature names that have both male and female versions such as Olivia (3.) and Oliver (1.), Aria (26.) and Ari (69), Ellie (35.) and Eli (52.), Billie (47.) and Billy (74) and Harriet (62.) and Harry (22.).

And of course, the rise of gender-neutral monikers continues with gems like Frankie (31.), Mackenzie (51.), Peyton (98.) and a personal office favourite Quinn (73.).

Royals reign

The British royal family may be steeped in history but their names continue to capture the heart of Aussies today. Before Charlotte (2. this year) was dethroned by Isla (1.) it remained at the top since 2015! William (5.), Mia (6.), Lucas (9.), Archie (13.), Harry (22.), Sienna (23.), George (27.) and Charles (75.) continue to lead the charge for royal names and we don’t see that trend slowing down anytime soon.
