BabyCenter.com released their list of top baby names for 2015 this week, revealing a rise in the number of people naming their children after Instagram filters. Yep.
BabyCenter’s 2015 names report is an annual list based on the names of more the 340,000 babies born this year to parents registered on its website.
And although classic names like Jackson and Sophie still topped the list, Instagram seemed to be a popular source of inspiration for parents this year.
According to the list, the Instagram-inspired name Lux (an Instagram photo editing tool) is up 75 percent from 2014 on the list of baby boy names, Ludwig is up 42 percent for girls, Valencia is up 26 percent and Juno up 30 percent.
Other popular filter names include Amaro, Reyes, Hudson and Kelvin and Willow.
“This is the first time we’ve seen technology break through as a source of name inspiration,” Baby Center’s Global Editor in Chief, Linda Murray, said in a release.
“Photo-sharing is a daily and emotional part of Millennials’ lives, and those ingredients can trigger love for a name.”
It’s worth noting some Instagram names weren’t as popular – Sierra, Walden and Lark lost all ground.
Here are BabyCenter’s top names for this year:
