Australian Baby Girl Names

A lot of the names you’ll find in modern-day Australia are similar to those found throughout the US and Europe ‒ heavily influenced by Latin, Greek, British, and Scandinavian cultures.

However, with over 250 native languages and 500 different nations across the continent, there are certainly lots of unique Australian girl names for you to choose from.

So, without further ado, let’s dive headfirst into our ultimate list of 216 Australian baby girl names (and meanings!):

What is an Australian name for a girl?

As we mentioned before, there are two different categories to Australian girl’s names ‒ Australian Aboriginal girl names and popular Australian girl names, so here’s a selection of the top Australian girl names from both types:

  1. Adelaide: A tribute to the South Australian city, the fifth-most populated city in all of Australia ‒ Adelaide is still one of the most popular girl’s names in Australia. We love that this Australian girl’s name can be shortened to Addy.
  2. Bindi: You might recognize this Australian girl name as that of Bindi Irwin, daughter of the legendary zookeeper and conservationist Steve Irwin. Bindi means “little girl” or “butterfly” in the Aboriginal Australian language of Noongar.
  3. Bodhi: A popular Australian girl’s name, Bodhi is actually an Indian name, meaning “enlightenment”.
  4. Darcy: An Australian name for girls that’s travelled all the way from Ireland, Darcy means “dark-haired”.
  5. Evie: One of the most adorable Australian baby girl names, Evie means “life” or “breath” in Hebrew, from the name Eve.
  6. Isla: Isla Fisher is one of the most well-known Australian actresses, and we absolutely love her name! Isla means “island” in Spanish.
  7. Kylie: Of course, one of the most famous Australians in the world is Kylie Minogue ‒ we still remember her days in Neighbours! Kylie is an Australian Aboriginal girl’s name meaning “boomerang”, but it also means “beautiful”, from the Gaelic surnames O’Kiely and O’Cadhla.
  8. Summer: From the outside, it seems like Australia is in a permanent state of summer, so we love this popular Australian girl’s name for your little peanut.
  9. Sydney: When it comes to Australian girl’s names, Sydney had to make our list. Sydney is one of the largest cities in the continent, although, contrary to popular belief, it’s not the capital. It’s also an Australian boy’s name, too, and means “wide island” in Old English.
  10. Victoria: Another of the Australian girl names after a place in Australia, Victoria is one of the largest regions in the continent. Victoria is originally a Latin name meaning “victory”.
