'Glee' Names Were Hot In 2010
'Twilight' was so last year. Although Isabella is still hanging tough as the No. 2 most popular baby girl name of 2010, BabyCenter reports that Glee has inspired a new trend in baby monikers this year.
Unfortunately, we don't see any of our favorite New Directions characters breaking the Top 100, but according the site, 2011 might be Glee's big year. The name Quinn increased in popularity by 60 percent, while Finn, Jenna and Lea also made big strides this year.
So which Glee-related names did make the Top 100? Emma, Noah, Hudson, and Sam are all on the list, and while those moms may not necessarily be Gleeks, we'd like to pretend the Fox series had something to do with their decision.
Sophia and Aiden were the No. 1 names this year, with Isabella and Jacob coming in strong in second place. Very interesting!
We can't wait to see what happens in 2011. We'll get to see if Sunshine, Mercedes or Blaine rise in popularity, and find out whether the release of Breaking Dawn will influence any Twi-hard mommies out there.
