Top Baby Names of 2012
Babycenter drew some conclusions about the list from pop culture, which are unproven but could be right. Why else would the name Grey move up a few spots if not for 50 Shades of Grey? I guess if you consider your child as part of the 50 Shades baby boom, you would name your baby after the book? And then would you also buy the T-shirt?

If only I had the list of names that my husband and I drew up for our daughter - it was a choice between Sophie, Isabella (Bella) and the name we chose, which isn't in the top 20. Phew, that was a close one. It's a bad enough being named Emma as an adult and answering everytime someone yells: "EEEMMMAAAAA".
Want more chaos? Last year, a school banned yoga pants and kilts. I'm in my yoga pants right now in solidarity.
