LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Teen girls may be gaga for Twilight vampire Edward Cullen, but werewolf Jacob Black has his own posse: Pregnant women.

According to name expert Kerri Hopkins, preggos are clearly on “Team Jacob,” because Jacob has been the No. 1 most popular baby name for boys since the year 2000.

Edward, on the other hand, only ranks at No. 137 according to the Social Security Administration’s list of top baby names for 2009.

Says Hopkins: “I guess moms-to-be think the name sucks.”

It also appears that more pregnant women are joining “Team Bella” too.

Hopkins notes that Bella – as in Twilight’s Bella Swan – was name No. 749 for baby girls in 2000, but skyrocketed to No. 58 in 2009. It’ longer version, Isabella, is No. 1.

The name guru, who uses the letters in people’s names to analyze their personalities, says any girl named Bella loves being the center of attention – the exact position of the Twilight character caught in the middle of the saga’s love triangle.
