Kids are now being named after Instagram Filters

More and more parents are naming their babies after Instagram filters…Yup, you read that correctly.

According to the US-based BabyCenter website the most common Instagram-inspired names for boys are Lux, Ludwig, Amaro, Reyes, Hudson and Kelvin. 


For the girls, Valencia, Juno and Willow had also significantly increased in popularity.

“This is the first time we’ve seen technology break through as a source of name inspiration,” Linda Murray, BabyCenter’s editor-in-chief, said in a release.

“Photo-sharing is a daily and emotional part of millennials’ lives, and those two ingredients can trigger love for a name.”

The parenting site gathered data from more than 340,000 parents in the world, it said, though the findings are unofficial.

Sophia was the top name for girls in 2015, while Jackson topped the list of popular boy names.
