Can you guess what the most popular baby names were in 2011?
Isabella had been the most popular name for baby girls for 2 years, but that changed in 2011, when Sophia took over the #1 spot. Sophia means "wisdom" in ancient Greece. Sophia has been in the top 1000 since 1880, which is the first year the American government began keeping statistics on infant names. Sophia entered the Top 100 in 1997 and the Top 10 in 2006.
For the 13th year in a row, Jacob was the most popular name for boys. Although it's been popular as a name for boys for a long time, the Twilight books and movies have helped keep it at the top of the list. Jake Gyllenhaal is the most famous real-life person who has that name.
