Our top 5 baby names 2023: The most popular baby names in Australia

Which baby names were the most popular baby names in Australia 2023?

Our favourite poll is back for the second year running. Once again we’ve dug through our treasure chest of names and looked in more depth at the names chosen by customers who purchased our personalised baby book, “Welcome to the World”. Want to see who came in first place? Read on.


Our hugely popular baby book introduces a child to our wonderful planet while inspiring parents to find wonder in the world around them. The books are printed locally and as with all Librio products, they’re printed on 100% recycled paper too, though you’d never guess. As well as being able to personalise the name and appearance of the child, you can also personalise the parents. Whether you need it for Mom and Dad, two moms, two dads or single parents, everything’s possible! The book’s available in a variety of languages including Albanian, Norwegian, Italian and French.

The most popular girls’ names in Australia

The list this year is full of newcomers! Olivia is at number 1 with Aurora taking Aria’s position in 2nd place this year. Popular in the US and the UK in recent years Olivia’s been in the top 5 two years in a row. Another newcomer, Gabrielle is at number 3 with Lily being pipped to the post this year and dropping to 4th place. Our 5th place this year was yet another newcomer, Tilly.

You can view last years’ selection here.

Much as with the girls, the boys’ list this year is also all newcomers except for one. For the 2nd year in a row, Hugo has reached the top 5. Although this year it’s in 4th place with Hunter being in 5th. In 1st place we have Harley, followed in 2nd by Thomas and Ezra replacing Henry this year in 3rd.
