CafeMom Reveals the Top Baby Names of 2011


new year babyCan you believe it's already time to tally up the top baby name trends of 2011? Me neither! I don't know where this year went, but thanks to the annual CafeMom baby name poll, I do know what thousands of you decided to call your little bundles of joy. And guess what?

Mason Disick really is a trendsetter! His name comes in at #4, and I can't say I'm surprised. The soon-to-be big brother has an impressively versatile moniker, both modern and classic. Another not-quite-shocker: Jacob is still going strong at #11. (I am somewhat surprised that neither Taylor, Edward, nor Robert made the top 50.)

Of course Twilight's influence can be noted over on the girl's side, with Bella at #37. A bit farther down the list, but still in the top 50, is the one name I really was surprised to see ... 

Neveah ("Heaven spelled backwards"). Personally, I never heard this name anywhere except the reality TV show Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School, but apparently I've been missing out on something pretty big!

My daughters name is Adalyn Grace and it NEVER appears on any baby name lists!

Kayle... KayleeBear

Yay my DDs name is Kaylee, and I am happy it was 41 on the list.  I like common names, but I didn't want 5 other Kaylees running around in her class with her.

Kritika Kritika

My dad's name is Robert Edward. I am entertaining Sophia and Amelia for my girls but that's mainly because they're popular names for my specific heritage.

casan... casanderson1

Mines not on there yay! Can't wait for my little Cavin to get here. :)

Mrs.M... Mrs.Morgan

Whooo hoo not on the list But Audrey is on there twice same spelling.

Nikko... Nikkole95

Am I the only one that saw Aubrey on there twice? All 3 of my boys names are on there. My twins, Noah and Logan, made the top 3 :( It certainly wasn' because I wanted popular names, I just loved the names! I don't think they are that p[opular in my area anyways.

Melis... Melissa042807

My son's name is waaaay down on the list, which surprises me because it feels like every time I turn around I'm encountering another little boy with the same name! LOL

kiras... kirasmommy11

Passi... Passion_of_Fire
