Blah baby name list makes us wonder: Would you let Mariah name your child?

May 5, 2011 at 10:36 AM ET

Baby name list day is like Christmas here at TODAY Moms! The anticipation ... the surprises ... the schadenfreude that your annoyingly judgmental neighbor named her kid THE most overused name in the world!

But this year, we're rather disappointed. The 2010 top baby names are giving us a bad case of deja vu. The favorites barely changed since last year. Jacob and Isabella are still the top choices. Sophia and Ethan came in second. And Emma and Michael remain third. For the full list, click here.

Thank goodness we can count on celebrities to bless us with nonsensical and perhaps even ungrammatical baby name choices. (Mariah Carey named her newborn twins Monroe and Moroccan.)

So, would you rather give your child a name that four other kids in kindergarten are likely to have -- or would you rather have Mariah Carey invent it for you?
