Naming a baby is a big decision to make, after all it’s a decision that will stay with your child for life. The top baby names in Australia for 2021 have been released, and you might be surprised by some on the list.
Expecting a baby comes with lots of decision making; Which pram is best? Which car seat should you buy? How many teeny tiny baby singlets does one newborn baby need? Perhaps the biggest decision of all, and the most headache-inducing of all, is naming the baby. Is it best to name a baby something unique that no one else will have or something more popular that everyone will love?
There are no rules, of course, but we all want to name our babies something that they’re not going to come after us twenty years later with name-rage, blaming us for naming them something that’s ruined their lives. Oh, the pressure. Their name is something they’ll hear in roll call day after day at school, and as you yell at them to come home from playing with the neighbours.
If you’re wondering what names other parents with babies born in 2021 will be calling out in years to come, we’ve got the list. The Top Baby Names in Australia are right here, and it looks like we’re preferring more classical names, as well as names that are more on the short side.

Around the world though, the list looks a little different. Each month Nameberry releases the current top names around the world, and right now the hottest names for girls are (in order) Aurelia, Maeve, Luna, Eloise, and Isla. For boys the top names are (in order) Arlo, Soren, Milo, Atticus and Kai.
It’s important to remember, that although you can feel a lot of pressure to decide on the perfect name, there’s no rules to naming your baby. All that matters is that you choose a name that you love.
Is your child’s name on the list? Do you prefer popular or unique names?
