Comments: A stripped-back girls list, as many names drop off, but few join. Samantha rejoins another list of popular names – could a reshuffle at Channel Seven have been an influence?

Comment: Royal George enters the Top 50; this name does seem to be doing pretty well. Harrison and Mason both enter the Western Australian Top 10 for the first time. A blow for Western Australia blogger Ebony, who dislikes the name Lachlan and is hoping it is on its way out – it rose 4 places and is back in the Top 10.
