When you’re in the personalisation business, you can’t help but be fascinated with names. Here at Stuck on You HQ, we have a large television screen in our office that tells us the most popular name placed on orders on our website. Right now the name on the screen is Liam. Last week it was Oliver. It is often Charlotte, William, Jack and Ava too.
You will find it hard to surprise us – we see every name and spelling combination you can imagine coming through on Pencil Cases, Backpacks and Labels and we often chat about the unusual names we spot or trends. Last week, McCrindle released their Top 100 Baby Names in Australia for 2013. If you are a lover of lists, trends and names this is the report for you, read the complete report here but here are the highlights.
