Although these baby names are, of course, the most used names in the country, you may find that you won't encounter as many baby Charlottes and Olivers as you would think.
According to McCrindle: "In 1987, 22% of babies born in NSW were given one of the top 10 baby names. Today, just 10% of babies were given one of the top 10 baby names.
This is more significant when considering there were over 5,000 more babies born in NSW in 2018 compared to 1987, yet fewer occurrences of the top 10 names."
So, if you're shying away from a name on the top ten lists, for fear of your baby being one of four Henrys or Mias in their class, don't panic...
