Victoria’s top baby names have been revealed

The results are rather...unexpected.

The top baby names in Victoria for 2017 have been officially released, and the results are rather unexpected.

Charlotte has topped the list for the second year in a row, while Oliver continued its stint as the most popular boys name for it’s fourth year! 

Victorian Attorney-General Martin Pakula told Channel Nine, ‘The most popular girls’ names were very different 20 years ago, with none of today’s top ten appearing in 1997’s equivalent list.

‘Jessica, the most popular name in 1997, has fallen to 100th place today.

‘James was the most popular name for boys in 1997, followed by Joshua.

‘While James remains popular today, Joshua has slipped to 26th place.’
