“When it comes to baby names, close to 2 out of 5 moms find inspiration among famous people and celebrities,” said Linda Murray, BabyCenter Global Editor in Chief. “Whether it’s the royal family or fist-pumping reality show stars, we’re seeing more and more pop culture influence throughout our Baby Names list each year.” The Kardashians actually had an impact on the list this year.

I’m not sure what to think about that.

You can also check to see where your name falls on the list by using this baby names finder.

Have a great weekend!

    I always breathe a sigh of relief when my kids’ names don’t make the top ten. My son’s name is pretty common and definitely could but I would be shocked if my daughters ever did. Why do I even care? So silly.

    Is it totally lame that I felt like it was a test and was worried my baby name would be on the Top 10? And to think I aaaalmost picked Lily. Still love that name though.
