“Twilight” Moms Have Made Jacob And Isabella The Most Popular Baby Names

Clearly, the new moms in 2009 are on “Team Jacob.” For the 11th year in a row, the name topped the list of most popular boy names, while Isabella — the full name of Bella Swan, Twilight’s heroine — pushed Emma out of the top slot for girl names. No word on where Edward falls on the list, but I swear, if “Renesmee” cracks the 2010 top 10, my head will explode. SPOILER ALERT: “Renesmee” is the name of Bella and Edward’s baby in the final installment of the series. The name is a horrifically stupid mash-up of “Esme” (Edward’s “mom”) and “Renee” (Bella’s mom). [CNN]
