According to data from the Western Australia Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages, the most popular baby names in Western Australia in 2015 were Olivia and Oliver.

Here are WA’s top 10 girl names and top 10 boy names of 2015:

Emily, the #1 girl name in 2014, was knocked out of the top 10 entirely in 2015. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that happen before, at least for a region of this size.

New to the top 10 are Ruby and Lachlan. Gone are Emily, Ella, Lucas and Jacob. (There were 11 names on each list last year, thanks to ties.)
