BabyCenter just released a list of the most popular boy and girl names for 2012.
Back in January, one Hollywood (or NY) power couple filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark office to get a trademark for their baby's unique name. Unfortunately, for the celebrity mom and dad, a Boston event planning company has had the name since 2009 and sued the couple for their attempt to gain the trademark.

My husband and I generally agree on things. Whether this is due to similar outlooks or the fact that he does his best not to butt heads with me I’m not sure, but whatever the reason, the result is a home and family that’s overall pretty harmonious. In fact, until recently, pretty much the only thing we regularly disagreed about was whether pizza should actually qualify as a food group. (It shouldn’t.) I was surprised to find out this past June that I was pregnant a third time and our headcount would be increasing again. I was even more surprised to learn a couple of months later that we were having a girl. I had the perfect name. So did my husband. They were not the same name. And neither of us is budging.
