New Zealand VS Australia popular baby names 2014

How close are we with our favourite names to our neighbours?

What names could inspire us from the Australian top 100 which don’t feature in our own.

********************************

New Zealand & Australia top names for girls and boys are the same

Charlotte & Oliver

*****

Girls top 10

NZ & Aus

Charlotte #1, Olivia #2 Emily #4 & Amelia #6.

share also; Sophie, Sophia/Sofia * & Ruby

NZ only; Isla (vs #17), Ella (vs #13) and Harper (vs #27)

Aus only; Ava (vs #12), Mia (vs #14) and Chloe (vs #15)

Boys top 10

 *************

Perhaps NZ is a little ahead of the Australia trends considering names that left last year (2013) Ones in italic still feature in 2014 in Australian top 100

Boys

Dominic, Tyson, Gabriel, Christian, Isaiah,

Jonathan, Kingston, Declan, Sam, Maxwell,

Joel, Jesse & Andrew.

*************

Girls

Indi, Mikayla, Faith, Claire,

Esther, Taylor, Jade, Lola,

Charlie, Alyssa & Victoria

*********

Perhaps Australians should consider one of these from the NZ top 100;

Freya, Florence, Thea, Aurora or Olive

Vincent, Asher, Grayson, Ezra, Theo or Nixon

* the Australian statistics combine names with same pronounciation but different spelling as one ie Sophia/Sofia is one name but in New Zealand they would be counted seperately.
