Disturbing news about baby names.

So, we found this story today, and decided it really needed to be added to our Too Disturbing to Describe section. It’s about the top baby names for 2009. Guess what they were? Isabella and Jacob. BOTHERED.

The story mentions that the occurrance probably isn’t sheer coincidence, and likely has something to do with the “Twilight” phenomenon. (Though, they do note that Jacob has been the top name for baby boys for over a decade, and Isabella has been in the top 10 since 2004.)

Thankfully, the name Edward only jumped 11 spots last year (to No. 137 on the boys’ list). But severely distubing to us is this: The biggest riser among boy’s names was “Cullen” — jumping 297 spots to No. 485 on the list.

This is not okay, Twi-hards. Not. Okay.
