Brangelina is #4 on Iowa's DoH List for 2009

The annual list of popular baby names released by the State Department of Health for Iowa was a surprise this week for those who had been awaiting it. It was announced that the name “Brangelina” is in 4th place for most popular baby girl’s name in the state of Iowa for the year 2009.

Health Department officials are at a loss to explain Brangelina’s popularity. Two women who had given birth to infant girls last year and named them Brangelina were questioned as to the reason why they chose that name. The first replied that she had “heard it somewhere and liked it.” The second insisted that she had named her baby after a member of her family.
