Isabella and Ethan were the top baby names in Hawaii last year, the Social Security Administration announced Friday.

Nationally, Isabella and Jacob were the most popular baby names.

There's also an online video of Chubby Checker counting down the most popular names of the past decade. Chubby also has information about a law that may help an older relative or neighbor get an average of almost $4,000 of extra help with Medicare prescription drug costs.

The Social Security's website also has a list of the 1,000 most popular boys' and girls' names for 2009 and a list of the top 100 names for twins born in 2009.
