Beller is alive!

One of the dudes in my office wife just had a baby yesterday! Sweet it is. Also sweet, they named her Bella (which I don't know that she was named after Bella of Twilight, but I know that his wife has read Twilight). It is a very cute name, that I will not deny, yet, I wondered how popular that name was, so I googled it. According to, Bella is a popular baby name, at least in 2009. Even more popular than Bella is Isabella, which is Bella from Twilight's real name. Which try as I might, I can't ignore the feeling that Twilight is the reason for the popularity of these names. Am I crazy to assume that? I also assumed Edward would be a popular boy name, but its not. Interestingly, Jacob is and not only that but has risen in popularity. Seems team Jacob takes their responsibility of being a super fan, that much more serious than us on Team Edward. Although, when it comes to teams, if you on Team Jacob, your still on the loosing team.

  1. (Beller is alive!) LOL, excellent use of that line. I have no doubt Twilight is at least partially responsible for the growth in popularity. 50 years from now there will be a lot of Grandma Bellas.
