Despite a preference for some names depending on where parents live in Queensland, Oliver and Charlotte top the list of favourite baby names.

Oliver and Charlotte are the most popular baby names in Queensland.

Of more than 63,000 babies born in Queensland in 2013, Oliver was the most popular boy name, beating Jack and Cooper.

For girls, Charlotte has moved from second place in 2012 to first, after Ruby and Sophie alternated as the favourites during the past few years.

Acting Minister for Justice and Attorney-General David Crisafulli says there are distinct name preferences depending on where parents live in Queensland.

“Up north, Lachlan stole the show in Townsville, and tied with Jack for first in the Cairns and Fitzroy regions,” he said.

“Cooper proved the most popular boys’ name in Ipswich, while Hunter topped the list in the Wide Bay region.”

He said Mia was the most popular name on the Gold and Sunshine coasts, while Olivia claimed first spot in Ipswich and Ruby reigned in Cairns.

George did not make the top 10 in 2013; however, the recent birth of Prince George might have an influence in 2014, he added.
