    The list of top baby names for San Diegans was announced Monday.

    Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns tracked the most popular baby names of 2009 for San Diego. The popular "Twilight" series may have influenced baby naming, since the No. 1 one girl and boy names are both main characters from the saga.

    Isabella topped the girls' list, and two variations of the same name (Sophia, Sofia) appeared in the Top 10. Mia, Samantha, and Ava round off the Top Five.

    The No. 1 boy's name was Jacob, followed by Ethan, Andrew, Dylan, and Alexander.
