Last Year's Top Baby Names, and More of Houston's Oddest Ones

The Social Security Administration has released its official list of the top ten baby names for 2010. While people might be naming their boys like Biblical prophets, they seem to be naming their girls after spicy Italian or Latina movie stars.

Without further ado, the top boys' names are, in order: Jacob, Ethan, Michael, Jayden (WTF?), William, Alexander, Noah, Daniel, Aiden and Anthony. Kinda Old Testamentish...

And for girls: Isabella, Sophia, Emma, Olivia, Ava, Emily, Abigail, Chloe, Madison and Mia.

During our damn-near daily trolling of Harris County Courthouse records, we've come across some other far more, shall we say, distinctive, names that didn't make this list, in 2010 or any other year. Read 'em after the jump, and read the best ones we found last year here:
