Jacob still No. 1

May 5, 2011 - Karin Elton
While the most popular girls name for 2010 is no longer Emily, the name Jacob continues to be a hit among new parents.

I didn’t know when we named our son Jacob in 1993 that it would be so popular of a name. I took the suggestion of his older brother, Adrian, whose friend at the time was named Jacob. I also chose the name in honor of Jacob Wetterling, who was 11 years old when he was abducted near his St. Joseph home in 1989.
