Jacob, Isabella Top Baby Names List for 2010

nelly!, flickr

My wife is a teacher in the Evansville area and when the time came to decide on what to name our kids she wanted to make sure we picked something that wasn’t so normal that there would be multiple children with the same name in their classes once they got to school. My only rule was that it couldn’t be something so out there that they would be ridiculed for the rest of their lives (I’m looking at you Nevaeh’s of the world).

Keep reading and see where (or if) your child’s name made the list.

Jacob and Isabella topped the Social Security Administration’s annual list of popular baby names, released Thursday.

Yes, those are also the names of two main characters in a certain vampire-based romance saga. But before ‘Twilight’ fans get too cocky, realize that Edward came in at 136 among male baby names this year.

2010 also marked the first time since 1955 that the name Elvis fell out of the top 1,000.
