Baby girl names have been on your list but you’ve been so busy setting up the nursery and getting everything else ready, you’ve left the final decision until the last minute.

Don’t worry she won’t remain nameless, there’s still time to choose a beautiful name that captures her essence perfectly.

When it comes to choosing names for girls, Australian parents are much more imaginative than previous generations. So think outside the box and see if any of these creative, unusual or trending names hits the spot!

Trending Baby Girl Names

If you want a trending baby girl name that’s top of the list then you can’t go wrong with Charlotte. Thanks to the little royal English miss, Charlotte has been number one four years in a row. Last year 1,673 baby girls were named Charlotte.

Of course, that could mean she could meet quite a few other Charlotte’s at school when she grows up. You could always call her Charlie for a more modern alternative.

  • My kids names are not on the list. I selected names that were different but not wacky


  • Some of those ‘Australian inspired’ names I can’t quite make the connection with


  • I like the names in the first list. Some of the unusual and Australian ones are a little too out there for me- like ‘Jericho’ – how is that Australian? That’s just weird.


  • I never followed trends or popularity lists when naming my kids. I had a book of names but didn’t even use that for the final names


  • My kids names aren’t on the list and I’m glad of that

    • Although some of the names are cute, none of them really jumps out for me


  • my 4yos name is on the list. It wasn’t popular when she was born but has been in the top 10 every year since :/


  • Glad my daughters name isn’t on the list and I personally don’t like any of them… some of them are just dreadful


  • What a great list of name inspiration. Some beautiful names. I especially like the currently popular list.


  • Angelina for a girl is my favourite name but it’s on the list it’s very nice


  • I like that my daughter has a unique but not out there name. Some of the ones in that list are nice.


  • I was never influenced by others when it came to choosing baby names. Mine weren’t original by any stretch but they also weren’t trending at the time


  • Happy my children’s names are not on the list :)


  • Oh dear some of these names are terrible!! In a few years the schools are going to be filled with crazy names!


  • Am happy with the names I have chosen – they are not uncommon but not so common that there’s another 7 with the same name in their classes.


  • It’s not very original anymore but I named my daughter Charlie. I like the name but it’s also in memory of my poppa Charli/Charles.
