The Social Security Administration released today its annual report on the most popular baby names, and as you may have guessed the biggest gainer was the name "Barack." Once floundering down at the 12,535th spot in 2007, it jumped to the 2,409th most popular boy name in 2008.
That's all well and good, but more intriguing to me is that 80% of the top 5 boy's names are characters on "Lost." Topping the list is Jacob, followed by Michael, Ethan, Joshua and Daniel.
