One Ella-va name: Perth’s top baby names revealed

ELLA and Jack were the two most popular names for babies born to HBF members in WA last year, according to a study by the health insurer.

Ella topped the list of girl’s names, followed closely by Chloe then Emily, Isla and Grace.

Ava, Charlotte, Olivia, Amelia and Matilda rounded out the top 10.

Jack was the most popular boy’s name by the length of the straight, with Oliver next best followed by Thomas, Leo and Lachlan.

Ethan, Samuel, Noah, Liam and William completed the top 10.

Piara Waters can lay claim to being the most fertile suburb in WA, with 50 babies born to HBF members in the suburb last year.

But there must be something in those Waters – only 18 of those 50 bubs were girls, with a whopping 32 boys.

Dianella was the next most fertile suburb, with 47 babies and the town of Australind in the south west had 46 bubs born.

Then came Canning Vale (41 babies), Landsdale (40 babies), Scarborough (37) and Duncraig (37).

Harrisdale (35), Como (33) and Innaloo (33) completed the top 10.
