It seems that fictional characters’ names of movies like Twilight, Vampire Diaries have been the choice of young parents nowadays in naming their children with. According to the recently released Social Security Administration’s annual “Popular Baby Names” list of 2009, it was topped with the names Isabella for female and Jacob for male which happen to be the names of two main characters in the “Twilight” saga as Isabella Swan and Jacob Black.
With both names having considered as “popular” (being in the top ten) for years, what is surprising is the quick gain in popularity of the name, Cullen (“Twilight” Saga), jumping from #782 to #485 in 2008. However, the first name of Cullen, surprisingly so, hasn’t even been able to catch a spot in the top 50.
