Pick a good one, Mom and Dad.Here is the list we've all been waiting for -- 2012's most popular baby names list gathered from CafeMom's community. Some will cheer that our little bundle made it to #9 (my son) because that means it's such an awesome moniker many had to choose it; while others will re-think their choice and head to the Social Security office for a name change.
One of the most controversial names -- Nevaeh (heaven spelled backwards) -- increased a notch in popularity this year from 2011's list, but the number one most popular name for boys and girls remained the same. It's clear we've been inspired by the Royal Family (wonder if Kate and William will have a little Junior if it's a boy), America's 'royal' somethings the Kardashians (Mason! Khloe! Kendall!), the ever-inspirational Twilight and Teen Mom, and even Fifty Shades of Grey, though shockingly Anastasia didn't make the list. Figures only the dominant one did.
Check out the list!

Please don't call the Kardashians America's royals! They are horrible and self involved. The British royals do charity work.

Just one--Nathan. My others: Kristian, Rebecca, Meghan, Jennifer, and Catherine didn't make the list, which is fine with me...I'm a little too old-fashioned, I guess : )
