People Are Naming Their Poor Children After Twilight Characters

Need further proof that Twilight fans are more than just fans? According to the Social Security Administration, the name Cullen was the 485th most popular name for boys born in 2009. Cullen also earned the distinction of fastest riser, jumping a remarkable 297 spots from 2008. Naming your child after a fake vampire is strange, but it's definitely a more level-headed display of fandom than this. [PopWatch/EW]
