‘Tis the month for cheer and end-of-year lists, our favorite of which has to be a roundup of the top baby names of 2015. Although the Social Security Administration’s official list won’t be published until May 2016, BabyCenter has polled its sizable audience (340,000 parents) to find out what the masses named their spawn in ’15.

The top names for girls and boys—Sophia and Jackson, respectively—were the very same as last year. Meanwhile, some new naming trends emerged in 2015, including folks naming their tots after Instagram filters—Lux, Juno, Valencia, Willow, Reyes, Ludwig, and Amaro included. Names associated with the ruling class—Royalty, Royal, Duchess, Reign, Keiser, and King—are on the rise. As are cosmos-inspired monikers (Moon, Luna, Stella, Sunny, Star, Venus), gender-bending names, and those inspired by YouTube stars (Kingsley, Link) and video game heroines (Joule, Meryl, Lulu).
