Baby surnames 2020

Hi there, In 2020 I requested a dataset showing the top 10 baby surnames nationally and for Auckland. Could I please have a data set showing the most popular baby surnames for 2020? It would be useful to have a list of the top 10 surnames for babies born in 2020 in Auckland and nationally.

I would like a list of the top 10 baby names for 2020 to be used in an education resource about cultural diversity and NZ's changing demographics. It relates to an article published by RNZ about the baby surnames data for 2019. Here is a link to the article:

We have used the data from 2019 in our education resource and would like to use the most current data now from 2020 to ensure our data and resource is up to date.

Response from
Department of Internal Affairs

Dataset submitted

In response to your request, the Department will release the requested information in full. The datasets for the top surnames in 2020 have been published on, and can be found via the following link:
