The SSA tallies most common baby names each year. I've not seen nor read any of the Twilight stories but I understand that Jacob and Isabella are characters in the story/s.

They are also the most popular baby names in the US for 2010. You can sort by state. Waaaay out here in the north-eastern corner of the country we like Owen and Emma.

In my year and state of birth my name was 7th in popularity. My name also comes up on this chart of top 5 names in the last hundred years.

My sons name is popular now, but wasn't so much when he was born. My daughters name is weird and will never make any charts.

How popular is your given name?

I've always liked my given name: Nick. Not quite common enough to be boring, but enough to be easily accepted. Strong sounding, too (hey, carlin used it in his "names" rant!).

Mine isn't on the list. It isn't totally unique, but it's never been overly popular. Although, it is common for girls to change their name to mine after a certain point in their life (becoming strippers).

Mine's been sitting steadily somewhere between the mid 60s and the mid 80s since the year I was born.

Mine broke the top 100 in 1968 and has been bouncing between the 30s and 50s ever since. It got as high as number 28 20 years after I was born.

Ah, well in that case it makes perfect sense.

2001 6
2002 9
2003 12

2005 15

So you're saying we should preemptively end the existing problem now?

"Trinity" shot from #523 in 1998 to #209 in 1999 when The Maxtrix came out, to #74 in 2000 and peaked at #48.

Compared to that, Isabella seems tame. Except that I'm not a 15 year old girl, so I think "Queen of Spain" before "Emo vampire girlfriend"

I think it's more efficient to tackle smaller problem populations first. Like our current blight of Mobius's.

Looking back over forty years, my name hasn't ever made the top 500.

My son's name doesn't exist on any of these lists. Probably because it came from some semi-obscure fantasy books, though it is really just an odd spelling of a very common name.

Are you using a different site? I couldn't find a single listing for "Tits McGee".

My son's name is Noah, that made #7 in 2010 which kind of surprised me. And in 2010 my name was ranked #82. I don't think my name has ever been very popular since it's an ugly name. Thanks dad!

Both the kids' names have hovered in the #300-#400 range over the past decade. Common enough that no one raises an eyebrow, rare enough that they can't buy novelty bike license plates.

My name has dropped around 175 places from #45 in 1991 to something like #220 today.

So having your name misspelled is what gets your goat, eh? Better stay away from Varus.
