Friday Night Movies

This Week’s Trend Goody:

I love movies as much as the next couch-potato-dwelling film geek, but even I was a little surprised by the recent news that Twilight is taking over more than the book and DVD sections. According to the Social Security Administration, Jacob and Isabella (or Bella) are the top baby names for 2009–both leading characters in the vampire series. I get those. They’re nice, traditional names. But Cullen? Yes, the last name of the lead, Edward, is also making a decent showing. True, pop-culture naming isn’t anything new. I’m even guilty of toying with the name “Joss” in honor of my favorite writer, Joss Whedon. Just promise me that “Vampyre” won’t be trending next year, mmmkay? What do you think about the Twilight-themed names? Did you pick a pop-cult-inspired one for your child?
