According to the Social Security Administration Jacob is the most popular baby name for boys, continuing an 11-year run at the top and Emma's reign was much shorter, lasting just a year before slipping to No. 2. Spotting Isabella to No. 1
Many of the top names — and the fastest risers — came straight from the popular "Twilight" series of books and movies, a collection of stories about teen romance and vampires. If that sounds hokey, don't bother naming your son Cullen.
Edward Cullen is one of the lead characters in the "Twilight" books and movies. Edward moved up only 11 spots, to No. 137 on the list. But Cullen was the biggest riser among boys' names, moving up 297 spots, to No. 485.
Edward Cullen is, of course, a vampire. His girlfriend? Bella, a common nickname for Isabella.
Jacob is another character in the stories, but Jacob's reign at the top started well before the first "Twilight" book was published in 2005. Isabella has been in the top 10 since 2004.
