Influence on people’s names

Isabella & Jacob

Do you notice a trend here? Isabella and Jacob ranked the top of the charts for male and female babies born in 2009, according to babycenter.com. Bella and Jacob also happen to be the protagonists of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Series, which was released as a blockbuster hit in 2008. Coincidence? I think not. If naming your child after a fictitious vampire seems like strange inspiration, it certainly didn’t stop American parents. Other vampire names featured in Twilight, including the names Cullen, Jasper, Emmett, Esme, and Alice also rose in popularity due to the series’ influence.
