This is another state where celebrity baby name Harper continued rising. While flower names were mostly down in Victoria, plant names are booming in the west, with Ivy and Willow the two biggest risers, and Poppy making creditable ground. Biblical classics also did well, with Leah, Elizabeth and Sarah increasing in popularity. Note the love of L and V sounds, such as in Layla and Evelyn.
