We Should All Be Ashamed of the Most Popular Baby Names of 2010
The Social Security Administration just released its list of the most popular baby names for 2010 . . . and we, as a people, should be ashamed of ourselves. Here are just a few of the reasons why . . .
#1.) The most popular boys’ name was Jacob and the most popular girls’ name was Isabella. You might recognize those as the name of two of the three main characters from “Twilight”.
#2.) And that’s not the only “Twilight” influence. The second-biggest gain for a boys’ name was Kellan. The actor who plays the vampire Emmett Cullen in the “Twilight” films is KELLAN LUTZ.
#3.) But that’s not the worst part. The two names that saw the biggest gains were Maci and Bentley. Why? MACI BOOKOUT is one of the girls on the MTV show “Teen Mom” and her son’s name is Bentley.
#4.) And clearly, we’ve lost respect for the classics. For the first time in 55 years, the name ELVIS didn’t make the top 1,000 boys’ names.
The top 10 most popular girls’ names are: Isabella, Sophia, Emma, Olivia, Ava, Emily, Abigail, Madison, Chloe, and Mia.
The top 10 most popular boys’ names are: Jacob, Ethan, Michael, Jayden, William, Alexander, Noah, Daniel, Aiden, and Anthony.
