    It’s interesting to see the differences. Matilda, Archie, Taj and Angus are still rare here. I personally love Matilda & Archie. I think if we get a cat I’m going to name him Archimedes so that I can call it Archie. Our old cat was named George Clooney.

      Taj really surprised me! Archimedes is an awesome name for a cat, George Clooney is pretty cool too! I hope you get a new cat soon 🙂

    Just on the last six months of ‘studying’ their BAs. I’d agree with you on Charlotte, Sienna (astounds me!), Lachlan and Cooper. So much so I actually drop them from the BAs I post otherwise they’d overrun the list. I have to mention this in my post otherwise people are getting a skewed idea of what’s hot there. Just an annoyance thing for me. The Siennas usually have awfully named sibs e.g Jett, Jhye, etc.. so I do tend to include a few of those 😉

    Taj, Kai, Charlie/Charli, Jai, Jayden, Coen (usually Cohen), Cody (various spellings), Taylah (various spellings), Layla (various spellings) represent highly too.

    I don’t like the name but it’s nice to see that Baileys are male 70% of the time.

    I rarely see Addison. A recent one was a boy but Maddison/Madison is big.

    I see lots of Matilda (#14 in NSW) but I love seeing it so I always post them. It’s seems to appeal to a lot of parents given the middle names it’s put with. Anything from Emily to Ryelyn. I find the same with Imogen which is there every day of BAs and one I expected to see on the list.

    I’m surprised not to see Xanthe mentioned but maybe that will be the next Bond search given how many are being born now 😉

    Popularity wise, Isla is one of the least popular names out of all the girls you listed which proves the Aussies are a tad behind us on this one.

      I am about page 700 of over 900 babies through! Its an effort I tell you but its fun 🙂 distracts me from my assignment :P.
      I actually thought Sienna had done its dash as the popularity must be almost 4 years old? I could be wrong though. There was plenty of Jett’s too that should have been on the list :).

      I like Bailey on a girl bit of a GP I love Miranda Bailey who is on Grey’s Anatomy. There was several girl Addison’s don’t think I saw a boy but will let you know if I do, I have meet a boy Addison.

      I had no idea Imogen was so popular, My Mum loves it. Is it so popular in NZ do you think?

      Hehe yup maybe a little too early for Xanthe don’t think I have even seen one but I could be wrong :P.

      What do you mean by tad behind with Isla?

        Here it’s 30. In NSW, for example, it’s #74. In Victoria, it’s #64. Stella is more popular than Isla. I think in general Aus is about a year behind.

        Sienna remains very popular. I can’t see it dropping just yet. Top ten in most states for a few years. Until I started looking at these BAs I thought it was around #30 or #40 like Scarlett so I was shocked to see it top ten. It moved up, not down, in a few states. I see it every day I look at the BAs which are gleaned from around the country.

        Wow it is quite far behind in Australia! How can you see individual states? I would have thought Aus would have been ahead of NZ do you think most of our trends come from USA and from England less so?

        I Thought Sienna was okay until it got uber popular and now I am sick of it! I wonder if next year it will drop out of top ten? Where do you think Isla wil be for 2009 in Australia? If I had more time I would look at BA’s 🙂
