Boring Baby Names

What a boring series of names announced as the top 100 names of 2011. To top it off, this list of names, announced on the website named Baby Center has no source listed such as the United States Bureau of Statistics or something that would make this seem real for me. Every year a major American national government agency compiles a list of  how many babies were born, and what names were most popular.
Where is your creativity America? These are the same list of names from the last ten, perhaps twenty years, and I for one have found the lists to be quite dull, if not boring.
Come on, you mean to tell me that Madison is still on the list? Madison has been on this list since the name was created in the 1980's , (for girls, that is).

What I'm really surprised is with England gaining a new princess, why isn't Kate on this list at all? You would think that with fashion mavens copying Kate Middleton's every fancy move, that the name Kate would have been on this list---if not in the top ten.

Here are the top 15, for both boys and girls:

1. Sophia
2. Emma
3. Isabella
4. Olivia
5. Ava
6. Lily
7. Chloe
8. Madison
9. Emily
11. Addison
12. Mia
13. Madelyn
14. Ella
15. Hailey
1. Aiden
2. Jackson
3. Mason
4. Liam
5. Jacob
6. Jayden
7. Ethan
8. Noah
9. Lucas
10. Logan
11. Caleb
12. Caden
13. Jack
14. Ryan
15. Connor COPYRIGHT 2012!!
