Looking further into each state government’s lists of popular baby boy name trends found on the web the following are some insights gained from the 2010 figures.

Oliver is popular across the country except in NT. It is in the top three in ACT, NSW, TAS and WA, and midway in QLD, SA and VIC.

Conversely, Cooper is only popular in QLD where it has been in first position for the last two years. It is not on the top ten lists in ACT, NT, SA, TAS and WA, and is low down the lists in VIC and NSW.

Likewise, Jacob is only popular in NT where it is ranked second. No other state has it on their top ten lists except WA where it is at the bottom.

William is still in the top three, where it has been for years, in ACT, NSW, SA, TAS, QLD, and VIC. However, it is at the bottom of the list in WA and eighth in NT.

Joshua’s popularity is varied. It is ranked third in SA, midway in VIC, NT and NSW, towards the end of WA, and not ranked in QLD.
