    Thanks for posting this, very interesting! My, NZ is quick to get its data out.

    Only the ACT has put out its Top 100 so far, but most states in Aus. have released their Top 10, and the name trends can be seen on both sides of the Tasman.

    Harper was a big climber in Victoria, Jack is #1 in most states, Olivia is #1 in Victoria, Cameron dropped significantly in the ACT, and Aidan and Aiden both disappeared from the Top 100.
