Supernatural Series

Sorry, Team Edward: "Twilight" continues to inspire, but only Jacob and Bella are on the hot list. But interestingly, names from supernatural shows long gone -- like Samantha from "Bewitched" and Piper from "Charmed" -- are coming back strong this year. “the perfect launching pad for a baby name is a story about attractive young characters with special powers,” says Wattenberg. Celebrities also seem smitten with the supernatural. "Mad Men’s" January Jones’ son Xander and singer Pink’s daughter Willow share their names with "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" characters, and actress Spencer Grammer may have picked Emmett from "Twilight". Of course this trend only goes so far: Despite "True Blood’s" popularity, no one’s running out and naming their kid Sookie -- yet. “It just isn't in parents' comfort zone,” says Wattenberg.
