A new dawn for Twilight baby names?

The most recent baby-naming trends apparently give new meaning to Team Jacob.

According to ThirdAge.com, werewolf names are the hottest new thing among moms-to-be, who are taking more than a little inspiration from projects such as Twilight, True Blood and The Vampire Diaries. This is hardly better than last year's vampire trend, however.

As it turns out, this fad may not be rooted entirely in pop culture. According to the Social Security Administration, Jacob has actually been the number one boy's name in America for 10 straight years.

To avoid banality or just plain weirdness, TheStir.com suggests going for names like Embry, Seth, Jared and Ren and steering clear of Jacob, Coot and Tyler.

If you do decide to go down this trail, you may be in for a mixture of mockery and approval, but think of all the shower possibilities! You could start by giving personalized mint tins as baby shower favors to ward off any potentially harmful garlic breath.
