The Kardashians start another trend. And this time, it’s their youngest member. Mason is the most popular boys’ name across the country. Can you guess what name tops the girls’ list?

Mason Disick is just two years old, but he’s already as big a cultural phenomenon as his mom Kourtney Kardashian! State-by-state, Mason once again tops the list for most popular boys’ names in 2011.

According to a list by the Social Security Administration, which tracks name trends in each state dating back to 1880, Mason is the top pick for boys’ names in 22 states, including Maryland, Missouri, New York and Idaho.

Noah, a popular biblical name, was the number-one pick for Hawaii, but Jacob once again grabbed the top spot in several states, including California and Texas — we’d like to think the Twilight franchise was behind this one.

For girls, Sophia grabbed the top spot in a whopping 22 states, such as Arizona, Oregon, and Pennsylvania. Teen Mom’s Farrah Abraham was ahead of the trend in 2009 when she named her little girl Sophia — or maybe she started it!

The name Emma came in at a close second, and Olivia and Ava were also popular picks for baby girls.
