Name That Baby

The trend toward giving babies names from popular culture continues; the most popular names of 2010 are both characters from the “Twilight” series of books and movies. But this is not a new phenomenon; Elvis -- which was was one of the top 1,000 most popular names in America since 1954 -- finally fell off the list in 2010.

The Social Security Administration releases the list of most popular baby names each year. According to the Social Security Administration, the most popular girls names of 2010 were:

  1. Isabella
  2. Sophia
  3. Emma
  4. Olivia
  5. Ava
  6. Emily
  7. Abigail
  8. Madison
  9. Chloe
  10. Mia

The most popular boys names were:
  1. Jacob
  2. Ethan
  3. Michael
  4. Jayden
  5. William
  6. Alexander
  7. Noah
  8. Daniel
  9. Aiden
  10. Anthony

Some names – such as Michael, William and Daniel – are perennial favorites. Michael and William are among the top 10 boys names of the last 100 years, and Daniel is 12th. Jacob has been the top boys name for 11 years running, and it has spent 20 years in the top 20.

Other names, such as Emily and Abigail, were popular once, waned in popularity and now are back in vogue. Emma, for example, was Number 9 on the list for the decade of the 1890s.

The Social Security Administration also releases information on the hottest names, those that have seen the biggest increase in popularity. These names tend to be heavily influenced by pop culture. For example, the top-trending girls name for 2010 is the name of one of the stars of “Teen Mom,” a reality series on MTV, and the top-trending boys name is the name of her toddler son.

The top-trending girls names are:
  1. Maci
  2. Giuliana
  3. Tiana (the name of the character in the Disney movie “The Princess and the Frog”)
  4. Quinn (one of the characters on the TV show “Glee”)
  5. Adalynn

For boys, the top-trending names are:
  1. Bentley
  2. Kellan (the name of one of the stars of the “Twilight” movies)
  3. Knox (the name of one of the children of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt)
  4. Enzo
  5. Karter
