Social Security Releases Top Baby Names of 2009

Twihards, rejoice: The Social Security Administration today released the top ten baby names each for boy and girls, and Jacob and Isabella topped the lists. While Edward didn't make the top 10 cut, his surname Cullen had the greatest jump in popularity for boys, while Maliyah (no doubt a take on first daughter Malia Obama's name) enjoyed the biggest bump for girls.

Looks like Parenting readers are right on trend with baby names: while Aiden and Ella were our top baby names, we predicted the vampire-craze and Obamarama to catch on with our Best Baby Names of 2010.
