Oliver and Charlotte were the most popular baby names in Australia in 2017.

There were 2063 boys named Oliver and 1687 girls named Charlotte last year, according to analysis by demographers McCrindle.

Oliver has held the top spot since 2014 after overtaking Jack and before that William.

In 2017, Oliver was the top boy’s name in all states except in the Northern Territory where Jack is still number one.

Charlotte took out the top baby girl name in every state and territory except Western Australia, where it’s number three, beaten by Mia and Isla at number one.

About one in 10 of Australia’s 300,000 babies born in the last year were given one of the top 10 baby names:
