The Twilight Saga has officially taken over this country. It’s everywhere…and there’s no escaping it, so you might as well just give in and decide if you are Team Edward or Team Jacob!
The Social Security 2011 Most Popular Baby Names List has just been released, and the number one names for both a boy and a girl are straight out of Twilight!
Sorry Edward, but your team lost this battle. Jacob is the most popular name for baby boys, and Isabella is the most popular for girls. With Breaking Dawn’s highly anticipated release in November, I wouldn’t be surprised if more vampire and werewolf inspired names start making a comeback as well. Personally, I think that “Cullen” is just adorable for a boy. And with the birth of Bella and Edward’s daughter, Renesmee, in Breaking Dawn, I wouldn’t be shocked if mega-fans name their girls “Rene” or “Esme.”
Twilight may have taken over 2011, but what celebs will inspire the most popular baby names for 2012?
If I had to guess, I’d say that Royal Wedding names will be huge, namely William, Kate, Harry…and possibly even Pippa!
There are also quite a few celeb moms who are getting ready to have babies, and what they decide to call them may influence 2012 baby names too.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon just announced their twins’ names yesterday. Will we see any more babies named Monroe and Moroccan in 2012?
