‘Cullen’ a Newly Popular Baby Name

May 10, 2010

twilight-saga-new-moon-poster-artThe new statistics for baby names are in this year, and guess what the fastest-rising boy’s name is?  “Cullen,” now the 485th most popular in the country.

The #1 boy’s name is Jacob, and the #1 girl’s name is Isabella — but before you get too excited, those were both rapidly gaining popularity before the Twilight series.  Just “Bella,” however, is now the 58th most popular girl’s name, so the series is definitely having a big impact.

In fact, this funny CNN article seems to think that “Cullen” is a first name in the Twilight world:

The boy’s name that rocketed up the list the fastest is Cullen — the name of the lead character in the popular “Twilight” book series.

Cullen’s girlfriend in the books is Bella, short for Isabella.
