Alistar, Blitzcrank, Janna, Soraka, Taric, and Sona are all considered strong support currently. I'd also consider Nunu to fill the support role in the possible future.

Some champions that are classified as support but fill more of an ap caster role are Lux, Morgana, Orianna, and Zilean.

Karma has been pretty popular recently as well... Not top tier, but she's in an interesting spot.

Janna is really strong imo, you can defend your lane alone if you want, you have a lot of cc (gale and ulti), a slow, a shield.
Get utilities masteries, pick flash and cv for summoner spells
AND SHE IS FUN TO PLAY, you wont die of boredom as if you were playing soraka.

My idea of support are champions that can reinforce their team with heals, auras, and cc on a income totally dependent on GP/5 items, runes and mastery. This is because they always end up on the bottom lane because they generally aren't as good/useful without having someone to support and they need to make sure the carry they are with can farm as much as they can to become stronger. In the long run, this helps your team win the resource battle very much in the same way that a jungler does by not laning at all and freeing up a lane.

IMO the best right now (havent tested Taric), are Soraka and Janna. Janna's amount of CC is pretty much unrivaled. Soraka carries the biggest heals and her silence also doubles up as extra mana. Infuse has got to be her best ability because of this, she can pretty much keep a lane going for a long time without either her or her partner taking a break.

IMO Jarvan
Every one of his abilities has multiple utilities. Armor debuff, knockup, AS + Armor buff, slow, ring trap. Who else has that much utility?
As an AD offtank he is unbeatable. Slap a frozen mallet on him for even more utility.
