Popular baby names in Tasmania, 2019

According to the Tasmanian Government, the most popular baby names in Tasmania in 2019 were Willow and Oliver.

Here are Tasmania’s top 10 girl names and top 10 boy names of 2019:

Girl Names

  1. Willow, 53 baby girls
  2. Charlotte, 44 baby girls
  3. Ava, 33 baby girls
  4. Amelia
  5. Evie
  6. Harper
  7. Ivy
  8. Lucy
  9. Ruby
  10. Isla

  3. Charlie, 40 baby boys
  4. Leo
  5. Henry
  6. Noah
  7. Jack
  8. Archie
  9. Theodore
  10. Harrison

In the girls’ top 10, Harper, Ivy, and Lucy replaced Matilda, Olivia, and Grace. In fact, it’s interesting to contrast Matilda (which dropped all the way from 2nd to somewhere outside the top 10) to Willow (which jumped from 8th all the way to 1st).

In the boys’ top 10, George, Charlie, Archie, Theodore, and Harrison replaced William, Mason, Hudson, Hunter, and James.

In 2018, the top two names in Tasmania were Charlotte and Oliver.

  1. Correct me if I’m wrong, or it is just my opinion, but the names seem very British. Especial monarchy names, like William, Charles, George and Charlotte.
    I know Tasmania is/was a colony, are they still that loyal/royal interested in the British monarchy?
    I tried to google it but in the past year google, and actually all search engines, are really lousy for finding info. I don’t know what changed with that.
    But, a search of Taz brings up oddball things that while are interesting, are not what I’m looking for.
    How do you go about your searches, if I may ask? Have you seen a change in the search engines?
    Sorry for the babbling, I wanted to word this better, my blood sugar is low and I get a wee bit loopy. lol

  2. Here’s something interesting from the University of Tasmania website:

    Although all six Australian states can claim British colonial foundations, the British legacy to Tasmania is more enduring and more visible to the eye than in any mainland state. The key manifestations of such influence can be measured in terms of the ethnic origins of its population, its architectural heritage, its patterns of land use, and in the record of its social and political development. The enduring nature of British influence can be attributed largely to the absence of major booms in Tasmania’s economy, thereby ensuring the stability of its Anglo–Celtic population base, and to the island state’s relatively moist, cool temperate climate, encouraging mainland visitors to detect ‘Britishness’ in both the natural landscape and built environment, as well as in the supposed conservatism of its fused urban and rural cultures.

    The words I used to search for this in Google were “modern British influence Tasmania” (though I didn’t use those quotes in the search, of course).

    I haven’t noticed too much change in search engines, but then again I’m usually very specific when I search — using quotation marks, plus signs, minus signs, and other search operators.
