Unfortunately I did not have access to the Queensland Top 100 last year, so I can only look at trends relating to the Top 30. If I had better data for 2011, I’m sure this would be more interesting and accurate.

Biggest Movers Up

  1. Mason +8
  2. Braxton +7 at least
  3. Hunter +7
  4. James +7
  5. Harrison +6
  6. Liam +5
  7. Jackson +3 at least

Up Slightly

Jack, Alexander, Noah, Oliver, Thomas, Xavier

Surnames for boys are popular and rising in all states, but they absolutely dominate in Queensland, with 5 of the 7 top risers a surname name.

Biggest Movers Down

  1. Jake -11
  2. Joshua -9
  3. Hayden -7
  4. Tyler -7
  5. Levi -5
  6. Nate -5
  7. Riley -4
  8. Eli -3
  9. Ryan -3

Down Slightly

Benjamin, Jacob, Lachlan, Max, Cooper, Lucas, Samuel, William

There seems to be definite drop in boys names that have a long I sound, as in Tyler or Eli, and short forms Jake and Nate also took a hit.
