THE most popular baby names in the state have been revealed by the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths & Marriages.

Oliver was the most popular name for boys for the second year in a row, while Olivia took out the top spot for girls.

Last year, Tamworth hospital’s maternity unit delivered 1000 babies for the second year in a row.

Paige Joseph, born on December 28, was the 1000th Tamworth-bub to be born at the hospital in 2016.

While staff in the ward knew baby number 1000 would be coming this week, it turned out to be a pretty close finish in the race to claim the milestone.

“I think [Paige] was the second baby born on the day,” Mum Chloe Joseph said.

“The midwives and doctors were very excited about.”
