The Most Popular Baby Names of 2009: The Triumph of Isabella

by The Name Lady (Subscribe to The Name Lady’s posts) May 7th 2010 12:00PM

The U.S. government has announced the nation’s most popular baby names. America, here’s your Top 10:


1. Jacob

2. Ethan

3. Michael

4. Alexander

5. William

6. Joshua

7. Daniel

8. Jayden

9. Noah

10 Anthony


1. Isabella

2. Emma

3. Olivia

4. Sophia

5. Ava

6. Emily

7. Madison

8. Abigail

9. Chloe

10. Mia

The big news is Isabella, ending a 13-year run of Em- names — Emily and Emma — at the top of the girls’ charts. It’s not a surprising development. Isabella has ranked in the top 10 since 2004, with countless other -bella names trailing in its wake. The Twilight phenomenon can’t hurt, either. (Team Edward can’t be pleased seeing Jacob and Isabella as king and queen of the baby name prom.) And Isabella has been one of the hottest names for Hollywood babies, too.

So the name itself isn’t a surprise. The amazing part is the way it took the crown: with a huge surge up to 22,000 babies born, thousands more than the year before. As a rule, mega-hit names just don’t do that. For decades, the popularity of the top names has been dropping, as modern parents try to make their kids’ names stand out. Even more amazing, Isabella beat out Jacob to become America’s true #1 name. That makes it the first female champion since Linda edged James all the way back in 1940. You go, girl.

What do you think of America’s favorite names?

    A: I didn’t know much about San Jose. I spent a little bit of time in San Francisco. When I was in Germany and we worked out the deal, I didn’t know where it was.

[url=]michael kors[/url] With his underwear and pants soaking-wet through, Sam stood sheepishly in the kids’ corner. There was no need to remind him that he should have told me sooner; his face told me clearly enough that he was uncomfortable being wet. There was nothing to do but rummage in my bag and pray that I’d find extra pants, even though I knew I hadn’t packed any. As luck would have it, I found a pair of big-boy underwear hand-me-downs from Oliver. Sam looked a little skeptical when I stuffed his legs into the underwear and told him he could go back and play without his pants. However, the lure of the toys was greater than any toddler-size anxiety about the indecency of his naked legs, so he toddled out and played happily until we left the restaurant. He pranced through Letn谩 park and the playground and even had an ice cream, before I took him home for a nap and a clean pair of pants. Good thing the weather had been mild. Although I always think twice now before I leave the house without an extra pair of pants, Samuel’s accidents seem to be getting a bit scarcer, and I dare say that before I know it I’ll be counting him in the ranks of the successfully toilet-trained. a [url=]tory burch shoes outlet online[/url]

    These knobbly, nutty root vegetables can be blitzed after roasting to make a delicious puree or added to a soup. Plant tubers from late February to April in a sunny or partly shaded spot in the garden in well-drained soil, placing them in holes 10cm deep, 30cm apart. When stems reach about 30cm, draw soil around them to about 15cm, as you would when earthing up potatoes, to stabilise the plants as they grow. Stake them to prevent the tops being blown about and damaged. As well as tasting good, they also look good, their tall stems topped with pretty yellow flowers which compare with heleniums or rudbeckia at the back of a border. Harvest the tubers in autumn when the foliage starts to turn yellow. Like potatoes, they can be invasive, so make sure you remove all the tubers to stop them spreading.
