Sam and Lissa's blog 5-10

It’s always fun looking at the list of most popular baby names for the year.
And appropriate too for Mothers Day…
It turns out just like 2011 the most popular names in 2012 were Jacob and Sophia. Jacob has been the top name for over a decade.
Here we go …For boys: the top 10 names are Jacob, Mason, Ethan, Noah, William, Liam, Jayden, Michael, Alexander, and Aiden.
                     For girls: Sophia, Emma, Isabella, Olivia, Ava, Emily, Abigail, Mia, Madison, and Elizabeth.
And what about the new interesting names that are starting to pop up:
For boys is . . . Major.  A tribute I think to the military.  Some of the other big jumps in names for boys are Gael, Jase, Messiah, Brantley, King, Ari, and Maverick.
The fastest rising name for girls is Arya . . . the name of Ned Stark's youngest daughter on "Game of Thrones".  Some of the other big jumps in names for girls are Perla, Catalina, Elisa, Raelyn, Haven, and Marilyn.
Another year I see without a Sam or a Lissa!!!
But we’re not going any place…and Monday Morning we’ll again have the KBAY $500 Wake-up Call at 7 starting with the Artist of the Day at 6:20.
