Choosing a bad baby name is like choosing a bad tattoo – except you’re not the one who’s stuck with it. While there’s no evidence that a rubbish name will affect your child into adulthood, it probably doesn’t help either. Just sayin’.

Here are 40 baby names that are tipped to be popular in 2019. Depending on your life views, this could either make them top on your list, or names to desperately avoid.

The following names and meanings all come from the Stay At Home Mum website based on information gathered from 900,000 Australian mothers. In other words, these are the baby names that will be appearing on birth certificates over the next calendar year.

If you pick one of the below, there’s a fair chance that your kid will share the same name as several of their classmates when they reach school age. On the plus side, as least they won’t get picked on for having a “weird” name. (Well, apart from Silas maybe. Sorry Silas.)
