NEW TOP 1000 FOR 2009!!!
I'm probably a little behind on this - but it's super exciting!
I was right with my prediction of Isabella taking number one for the girls. Jacob and Isabella for number one - who would have guessed? (Evil Twilighters!)I'm not too upset, though - Isabella and Jacob are very classic and I would much rather see these two than some certain other names *coughMadisoncough*
Top 20 each:
Seriously people? Ashley? Come on - it's so dated and masculine.
Really - Madison, Addison, Alexis, Ashley, Taylor, Hailey, Kaylee? Come on.......so boring. Time to move on. Riley is really disappointing, too. Madison and Riley are probably the two names that really get under my skin. They're just so blatantly masculine....ew. Payton, Kennedy and Addison are close runners up, though. Let the girls be girls and let the boys keep their names. It's not cute. It's not creative. And since when does having a masculine name make a girl any "stronger" or "give her a leg up"? Ridiculous, people. Femininity does not mean a weak little air head - look at Forbes' "100 Most Powerful Women" list. Angela? Indra? Cynthia? Irene? Ellen? Whoa! TWO Angela's......whats more feminine than the Angel- names? Obviously - femininity carries just as much power as masculinity. I'll repeat myself -let your daughters embrace their femininity and shine with it.
The boys names aren't TOO disappointing. Jayden kind of came out of left field and I expected Aiden to really make the top ten. The -ayden names are the only really disappointing ones that stick out. Hunter, Jason, Kevin...those are kind of dated, but not horrible. The boys have a lot better taste than the girls, really.
