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 #40??? I don't dispute it, because I've seen it other places, but it's surprising to me.

... the Helderberg neighborhood is fabulous for Trick or Treating, maybe too much so. We always see families coming from other parts of Albany by the van load - being dropped off at one end and working their way to the other. Lots of houses in friendly neighborhoods = a packed and good time. It is also rumored that a few adults dress up and roam the streets handing out adult beverages to other adults. Again, just a rumor...
