Elea from British Baby Names publishes the most popular first and middle names from birth announcements in The Telegraph, to show what the upper crust are naming their babies. We don’t have a “posh” newspaper, but the Herald and the Age probably have the most middle class and upper middle class birth notices. It does seem to have a certain cachet, as it’s not uncommon for parents to put an official notice in one of these papers, and another one in their local or regional paper.
