'Twilight' Influences Most Popular Baby Names of 2009

According to the Social Security Administration, Isabella and Jacob were the two most popular baby names in 2009. We all know Isabella is Bella's full name and no need for explanation of Jacob - I'm sure we all know where that comes from ;P

For some statistics: A little over 22,000 girls were named Isabella and almost 21,000 boys were named Jacob in 2009.

As for the name Edward? - It was No. 137 on the list and Cullen was the "fastest rising name among boys, soaring 297 places to land at No. 485."
