130 Australian Baby Names With Meanings

Selecting a baby name is a colossal task. You want something original, unique and fashionable. But in Australia, baby naming is not influenced by trends, but by tradition. Currently, the ‘hundred year return’ theme is taking place, in which the top Biblical names of the previous century are making a return. Apart from traditional baby names, firm sounding names for boys and gentle and soft sounding names for girls are also trending.

Actors, actress, sports personalities, and music stars also influence baby names. Even place names are a source of inspiration, and why wouldn’t they be, after all, Australian cities and towns have beautiful names. Besides, Australian parents also used hyphens, apostrophes, and phonetic spellings to make their child’s name unique.
