There'll be no royal influence into the top 10 baby names on the Northern Rivers.
Our readers helped us out on Facebook on Monday when they gave us the names they have chosen for their offspring and we are nothing, if not original.
Lisa Taylor Obrien suggested Ocean Tide and Blossom while Kirsstyn Arany gave us Grace and Siobhan.
Kerrie Melchior loves the area and suggested naming children after local regions.
"Why not Richmond, Clarence, Tweed a few more local regional names to keep with the theme above throw in a few named after creeks in the area too." She said.
Rebecca Jane O'Brien continued with a hippy theme suggesting Hope, Peace and Moon while Jessica-Lousie Groves went more 'earthy' with Ruby, Harlan, Nate and Theo.
Till Beetge was having a bet both ways by choosing classic first names such as Lachlan, Josiah, Amelia and Isaac.
"We have cool middle names thoug - Serenity, Coolio, Jaxon and Maddox."
Not everyone was into exotic names with Shane Koning suggesting people be aware the children have to have their names for their entire lives.
"I prefer traditional or at least normal names myself," he said.
