Stikins ® Name Labels: We’re Celebrating The #AusOpen With UK Names Versus Australian Names!

https://www.stikins.co.uk/

The Australian Open is moving into its final weekend so we thought we'd celebrate the first grand slam of the year with a showdown between the most popular names in the UK and the most popular names in Australia!

For our supremely scientific * study, we’ve taken a look at the top 100 names given to children born in 2016 (the latest set of data for both the UK and Australia) to see how the countries compare – at least when it comes to choosing names!

* i.e. not remotely scientific at all

  • Amazingly 60% of the top 10 names are the same in both the UK and Australia – although Australia’s top name falls significantly lower in the UK (coming in 13th place), while the UK’s top name is almost as equally popular in Australia (coming in 2nd place).
  • 75% of the top 20 names are the same; although where the UK choose Alice, Freya, Jessica, Poppy, or Scarlett, parents in Australia are more likely to choose Evelyn, Harper, Ivy, Ruby, or Zoe.
  • This similarity continues through the top 50 names (64%) and the top 100 names (66%).

  • While the UK and Australia have similar tastes in girls’ names, there’s a bit more variation when it comes to naming boys; only 40% of the top 10 names are the same in the UK and Australia – although “Oliver” is the most popular choice in both countries.
  • 50% of the top 20 names are the same; with the UK favouring Alfie, Archie, Freddie, George, Isaac, Jacob, Joshua, Muhammad, Oscar, and Harry where Australia favours Alexander, Harrison, Hunter, Jackson/Jaxon/Jaxson, Lachlan, Liam, Lucas, Mason, Max, and Samuel.
  • The top 50 names are 60% the same, while the top 100 names are 63% the same.

DESPATCH & DELIVERY OF STIKINS ® NAME LABELS

While we don’t ship to Australia, we do have a number of customers from a variety of different countries (including Australia!) who order name tags from us. We are more than happy for non-UK customers to order from us with a nominated UK address; for example, you can nominate the address of friends or relatives living in the UK, who will be able to forward your sticky name labels onto you OR hand them over the next time you meet up. Alternatively, you may be able to order from our sister company (Madebuy), who supply school name labels via Amazon and are able to ship internationally.

We offer TWO UK delivery options when you order Stikins ® stick on labels from Label Planet:

STANDARD DELIVERY: our standard delivery service is Royal Mail’s first class service and is free of charge. Around 93% of first class mail arrives the next day, with the remainder taking a day or two extra (particularly in the London area).

SPECIAL DELIVERY: next day delivery is via Royal Mail’s Special Delivery Guaranteed service; this guarantees that your stick on name labels will be delivered by 1pm on the next day and costs £5.75.

This option is ideal if you need your sticky name labels to arrive in plenty of time before an important date – for example, if you need to order name labels for school trips or stick on clothing labels for a friend or relative who is moving into a nursing home or residential care facility.

If you are ordering name stickers on a FRIDAY and need to receive them over the weekend, we also offer Royal Mail’s Saturday Delivery Guaranteed service, which costs £8.75. 

Currently our Special Delivery options are ONLY available to request by phone (call us on 01270 668076, Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm), which allows us to ensure that your name labels will be printed and posted same day for next day delivery.
