The Social Security Administration's most popular baby names of 2005 ranking are out, and while the Bible-happy boys' list seems the same as it ever was [same as they ever was, same as it ever was, same as it--oh, sorry. Flashback.], the girls' list had an upset.
Ava came from out of nowhere [or anyway, #25 in 2004] to muscle her way into the top ten, landing at the #9 spot. And why was this an upset? Because Sophia's been working hard for years to make it into Isabella and Hannah territory, and then--BAM!-- Ava jumps ahead of her. Sophia's ranking in 2005: #11.
All's I know is, Ava'd better watch her back.
