These are set to be the most popular baby names of 2019

Royal fever is having a big influence in 2019.

Naming your baby – is there a bigger decision you’ll ever make for another person? Traditionally the top choices each year for Kiwi monikers don’t shift around too much, the same names often pop up on the lists, with a new entry every now and then.

Despite the growing trend for parents to come up with original, unique names, the latest data from parents across the ditch suggests that next year we’ll see a nod to more traditional names of the past.

Parenting website Stay At Home Mum, annually gathers data from over 900,000 Australian parents to gauge some idea of what the trends will be in the near future. Their Top 40 offers some surprises, not the least of which is the fact that Charlotte has been bumped from the top!

That dropping of Charlotte is perhaps even more surprising due to the Royal Fever that has swept the nation this year. Never fear though, Louis has made an appearance, alongside other royally inspired name choices, as you might expect.
