Baby names seem to get crazier every year but that could all be about to change…


“Australians are moving away from fad-driven naming, such as creative spellings and borrowing names from popular movies and TV series,” says demographer and social researcher Mark McCrindle.

“Parents are starting to look back into the past and choosing names that have substance so they’re not just in for today but will last for a lifetime.”
