Baby Names increasing in popularity in 2009

Isabella made the leap into the #1 spot as the top girl's name in the U.S. in 2009, while Jacob topped the post again for boys. Other names, inspired by pop culture and shifting naming and population trends, made big leaps in 2009. Bristol, daughter of 2008 VP candidate Sarah Palin, was a large influence on naming trends, as were the characters in Twilight. Malia (daughter of President Obama) leapt 153 spots in popularity during the year (40th largest rise for girls), and several variations of the name appear on this list.
