Naming your baby – is there a bigger decision you'll ever make for another person? Traditionally the top choices each year for Aussie monikers don't shift around too much, the same names often pop up on the lists, with a new entry every now and then.
Parenting website [Stay At Home Mum](https://www.stayathomemum.com.au/baby-names-2/40-fabulous-baby-name-predictions-that-will-trend-in-2019/ |target="_blank"|rel="nofollow"), annually gathers data from over 900,000 Australian parents to gauge some idea of what the trends will be in the near future. Their top 40 offers some surprises, not the least of which is the fact that Charlotte has been bumped from the top!
That dropping of Charlotte is perhaps even more surprising due to the royal fever that swept the nation in 2018. Never fear though, Louis has made an appearance, alongside other royally inspired name choices, as you might expect.
