Teachers: Get Ready For "Glee," "Mad Men" Kindergartners

ScreenHunter_12 Dec. 08 12.54In about five years, every kindergarten classroom will have at least two Sophias, probably an Isabella, and perhaps four boys whose name rhymes with the Gulf of Aden. Baby Center reports that 2010's most popular names for girls were Sophia, Isabella (No. 1 last year), Olivia, Emma, and Chloe. Aiden is the top pick for boys (again) and is joined in the top 10 by Jayden (No. 5) and Caden (No. 8). New moms and dads seem to like old names for girls (Abigail, Ava, Lily) and Old Testment names for boys (Jacob, Noah). They also love their TV families; Shine says characters from Glee (Quinn), Mad Men (Don, Betty, Roger), and 16 and Pregnant(Maci, Farrah) all got a baby bump. Sarah is on the way down, but Bristol, Willow, and Piper are increasingly popular.

  • I've got one of the above ... and I still hate that her name is so popular! I chose the name 8 years before she was ever born. Oh, well. She's still unique in my eyes. (not Unique - ha.)
