The parenting and pregnancy website, Baby Center, has released the top baby names for 2015. While some names are on the list for a second year in a row, there are a few who didn’t crack the top ten, but are heavily on the rise — thanks to social media and Hollywood!

What was really shocking, was the fact that Instagram filters played a huge role in babies names this year. The names Lux, Juno, Reyes, Ludwig, Valencia, and Willow – all of which are filters – are baby names on the rise. Oh, the power of social media! Then there is the little ole’ fact that celebs played a key part in the rise of other names. Thanks to Chris Brown‘s adorable name for his daughter, the name Royalty is up 88 percent for girls in 2015. Then there is Kourtney Kardashian‘s son Reign, who could be behind the 54 percent spike for a boys name. Lastly, we must mention that Duchess is up a whopping 75 percent for girls — thanks Kate Middleton!
