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

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.

Classic NZ girls and boys (1999-2009)

This was done using the formula of Pam & Linda from nameberry, NZ name data is limited to 10 years where as the SSA shows 130 years + we only have access to the top 100 names! All these names have been in the top 100 for the past ten years.
