name tag isabellaAs it does every year, the Social Security Administration today released a list of the most popular baby names in 2010, sorted by state.

So we pulled the list -- the 100 most popular names for boys and girls born in New York last year are after the jump. We also looked at the top 10 names this year ranked during the last few years...

This year's top 10 for the entire country

Oh, Twilight.

This year's top 10 for New York State, over the last three years

It might be time to change it up a bit, New York.

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.

One of my favorite hikes is the Beebe Hill and Harvey Mountain State Forest in Austerlitz. Beebe Hill is an easy hike with a restored fire tower that gives you an awesome view of the Taconics and Catskills for very little effort. The foliage is spectacular even if you don't climb the tower.
