Why am I not surprised: Lopez is #21 at 230/100,000. I would say that's pretty rico, suave.

That's funny that such names were popular in 2009 because according to researches of 2010 and 2011 the two most popular names among boys and girls are Bella and Jacob. More and more kids are named these days after Twilight characters.
