2012 top baby names in Queensland

On 6th January 2012 Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Jarrod Bleijie announced 2012 Queensland’s top baby names’ they are as follows:


  • Jack, Cooper, William, Noah, Oliver, Ethan, Lachlan, Thomas, Liam & James


  • Ruby, Charlotte, Sophie, Chloe, Isabella, Amelia, Mia, Emily, Ava & Olivia

Jack has toppled Cooper after a three-year reign as the most popular boy’s name registered for 2012 in Queensland.

Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Jarrod Bleijie said while names helped distinguish us from each other, they were also important in establishing our identity.

“Naming a child is one of the most important things a parent has to do,” Mr Bleijie said.

“The names we choose for our children can define them for the rest of their lives, through all the highs and lows.

Mr Bleijie also goes on to suggest that William and Kate might give consideration to these popular names for their pending new arrival. “It can at times be challenging to find the right name for a child – a dilemma the young royals will no doubt be going through over the next few months.

“With these results maybe a Princess Ruby or Prince Jack could be joining the Royal Family soon.”

Other names that made the 2012 top 10 list included traditional names such as Chloe, Amelia and Emily along with William, Thomas and James – a trend highlighting that generational names are often carried on through the decades.
