As if dashing out to buy the knock-off of Kate Middleton’s wedding dress isn’t dumb enough, hordes of women are ditching their brain power and hitting the power button on their remote controls for ideas on what to name their spawn.
According the Social Security Administration, the most popular baby names of 2010 were Isabella and Jacob…yep, same as the characters from the movie Twilight.
This means one of three things: the vampire flick has replaced baby making music during sex; new moms are planning to raise a batch of blood-suckers; or they are too lazy to think of an original name for their offspring. Tough to decide, but I’m putting my money on the latter.
A few (ok, most) eyebrows rose when Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon revealed their infant’s names, but at least Moroccan and Monroe are unique — until next year anyway, when the imitators steal those too. I’ll admit, I used to rag on people who gave their kids weird names like Urhines, Kermit and Joker, but I’m starting to think the joke is on parents who give their child a trendy name that will strip them of their individuality as an adult.
And, don’t even get me started on people who give their brand new babies brand names. Armani, Porsche, Evian…really?
