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.
