Every year, BabyCenter gathers data from more than 350,000 parents to come up with a list of the 100 most popular baby names. In 2015, these monikers took the top 10 spots. (Go to BabyCenter to see the full list for both boys and girls.)
BabyCenter also crunches the data to spot trends among the top 100, and this year there were several, including:
Instagram inspires more than selfies. From Lux to Valencia, the tools and filters parents use to showcase their photos are also being bestowed on their little ones.
Parents look to the stars. No, not the ones in Hollywood (though TV and movies still serve as inspiration). The real stars and planets. Some examples: Luna, Stella, and Venus for girls; Jupiter (yes) and Sunny for boys.
Royalty rules. Not surprisingly, George and Charlotte made the list; but parents also turned to words that connote royalty, like Prince, Princess, Regina (Latin for queen), and Kaiser.
