The Terrible 20: Trendy Baby Names


According to the Social Security Administration, the most popular name for a baby girl in 2012 is "Sophia," and, for the 13th year in a row, the most popular name for a boy is "Jacob." Other trendy newborn monikers include: Madison, Isabella, and Alexander. We're raising a generation of strippers, vampires and investment bankers. But it could be worse.

But we've only come up with 5 and need help with 15 more. Leave your terrible baby names for 2012 in the comments or tweet them @TeamCoco with #BabyNames2012.
