As 2012 comes to a close, we'll be seeing a lot of lists regarding the best and worst that the year had to offer, as well as some of the most popular things of 2012. Starting things off is BabyCenter.com, who has released the top names for babies in 2012.

Unlike lists from the last couple of years, where names from movies like Twilight have swayed names on the top of the list; 2012 seems to be the year of traditional names with no particular trend at the top of the list.
