OK, Chana, this is your America 2010 Awareness Quiz:
1. Name an American movie that came out this year:
Ummmm….
2. Name a current American prime-time television show:
Ummmm…
3. Name a song recorded in 2010 by an American musician:
Ummmm…

You get the idea.

So I nearly fell off my computer chair when I read that we inadvertently gave our newborn daughter 2010’s MOST POPULAR NAME FOR AMERICAN GIRLS.

We named our daughter Tsofia, after my great-grandmother Tsippa. The name Tsofia’s a little unusal in our corner of Israeli society, but our Israeli daughters assured us it wasn’t overly unusual (my mother has always warned me “Just remember that whatever you name you give your child, he or she will have to get through first grade with that name!)

And then this week I saw that Babycenter.com’s most popular names for 2010 this year were:

Girls
1. Sophia
2. Isabella
3. Olivia
4. Emma
5. Chloe
6. Ava
Boys
1. Aiden
2. Jacob
3. Jackson
4. Ethan
5. Jayden
6. Noah

I guess we’re so uncool, we’re cool. Or something like that.

Pretty funny, huh?
