Most Popular Baby Names List is out!

None of my kids’ names made the list. I thought I was being original when naming my children. My daughter was named after a soap opera character (don’t stone me) and doesn’t run into too many people with her name. My youngest was an inspired choice. He has NEVER run into anyone with his name and probably never will. My middle son was given a family name and I thought it would be somewhat original because I didn’t hear it very often. I’ve run into 4 others in his grade alone with his name, though they spell it in different ways.

So much for my originality. I love my kids’ names and I hope they do too.

Anyway, the top 10 boys and girls names for 2011:

Boys:

Jacob
Mason
William
Jayden
Noah
Michael
Ethan
Alexander
Aiden
Daniel

Girls:

Sophia
Isabella
Emma
Olivia
Ava
Emily
Abigail
Madison
Mia
Chloe

The bad news from that list? Apparently Reality Television is having a big impact on our society as Mason is the name of one of the Kardashian kids and it made a huge jump into the top 10 boys names. Barf.

There’s another reality show called ‘Jerseylicious’ and a chick named Briella is on it. That name is making a noticeable jump into the top 1000 too.

Since my daughter is named after a soap opera character, I guess I can’t throw stones except to say this.

The character she was named after was a doctor, she was beautiful and everyone loved her.

You can’t really say that about someone who got famous because of a sex tape.

Did you child’s name make the list?
