My parents were clearly trend setters in the '70s. Took ya'll a while to discover the fabulousness of Abigail.

James is a perennial favorite. It's been a solid performer for the past couple of centuries.

I know the "Twilight" books and movies are popular. But really, Isabella and Jacob are now the most popular names nationwide?

Yeah, I wonder where Jacob and Isabella fall on the charts BEFORE Twilight mania hit the country.

My daughter, Amelia, was born in '08. I'm amazed that her *unique* name is still rising...now #40??? I don't dispute it, because I've seen it other places, but it's surprising to me.
