The list of 2010’s biggest baby names bowed this week, and people couldn’t get over the influences: “Twilight,” “Teen mum” and Khloe Kardashian, for crying out loud.
But that’s how it goes — as people rise in pop culture, their names get inculcated in our brains and start to sound better and better.
So whose monikers will be top of mind when you’re expecting five years from now?
The NBA star whose name includes both of those words is just getting started. Superfans should pray for a set of twin boys. Blake is #87 on the 2010 list -- Griffin is #231.
The chart-topping songstress is only on her second album -- that voice isn't going anywhere. 'Adele' just squeaked into the top thousand at #908.
The first daughters' names are already climbing the ranks, clocking in at #302 (Malia) and #344 (Sasha). But the longer we watch them grow up, the more their names will grow on us.
The girls are already making a run on the list -- Bristol is #562, Willow is #290 and Piper is #144. Tripp trickles in at #671, but Track and Trig have yet to break in. That, we assure you, will change.
Stephanie Meyer, who wrote 'Twilight,' is going through the adaptation process all over again as her next novel, 'The Host,' comes to the big screen. Melanie is the main character, and Saoirse Ronan ('The Lovely Bones') will play her. Saoirse is nowhere to be found on the list -- and Melanie is #82.
Don't underestimate the power of parents wanting to endow their kids with the karma of success. Mark has fallen to #161, but we're betting it will climb in sync with Zuckerberg's net worth.
You haven't nearly seen the last of the Hollywood royalty that is the Jolie-Pitt brood. We're counting on Vivienne -- currently at #428 -- rising quickly through the ranks. Knox is already at #457 and Paxton (long for 'Pax') is #295. Shiloh's hanging out at #620, and Maddox leads the pack at #180.
And while Khloe Kardashian is already repping the family at #42, we're betting it's Kourtney's firstborn, Mason, that will have the real staying power. His name clocked in at #12.
Well, plenty of new parents are going to pay tribute to their happy post-collegiate years there -- even if they do it from the suburbs. Austin is already #64.
If it's a girl, it might be Diana -- currently #191.
Seriously, people can't get enough Pippa right now. And she's not on the list at all. Get to work! Your baby would look awesome in that hat.
