Girls baby names Australia: One name reigns on since the records began. | Name News | Scoop.it
There’s just one girls’ name that has been loved by Australian parents for generations. It’s the only name that was in the top 100 in the 1950s and has remained there since. It was as popular as Cheryl and Robyn in the 1950s, as Danielle and Megan in the 1970s, as Maddison and Taylor in the 1990s, and it’s as popular as Piper and Luna now.

The name? Elizabeth. Bow down to the queen of names.
