Charlotte and Oliver top Aussie baby names for 2020

Oliver and Charlotte continue to be Australian favourites when it comes to baby names.

More than 1609 baby girls have been named Charlotte and 2206 boys named Oliver in 2020, according to McCrindle Research.

The two names have made it in the top 10 list for baby names for the past decade in Victoria, alongside Olivia, Jack, William and Noah.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics estimates a baby is born in Australia every 1 minute and 44 seconds.

But some old favourites don't make the top list these days. One in every 30 baby girls born from the mid-1980s to the early 2000s was named Jessica, according to McCrindle. It was the most popular name for girls in Australia for 16 years, but doesn't rate highly for new parents anymore.

Since last year, Isla has bumped Ava to the sixth most popular choice, while Noah has jumped to the second most popular, moving Jack and William down to third and fourth respectively. Charlie has made the top 10 for boys, bumping Liam down the 11th spot.
