The new list of the most popular baby names is in -- and we're sad to report that one of them was influenced by a Kardashian. Sophia is the new most popular baby name for girls, while Jacob is the No. 1 name for boys for the 13th year in a row, according to a list released Monday by the Social Security Administration.



Isabella, which had been the top girl's name for two years, sunk to second place in 2011. Emma, Olivia and Ava came in third, fourth and fifth. Mason rose 10 spots to become the second most popular name for boys -- most likely due to Kourtney Kardashian's little reality star (though Mason first entered the top 100 in 1997). William, Jayden and Noah completed the top five names for boys.

Another frightening factoid: The fastest rising name for girls was Briella, which rose 394 spots to No. 497. Briella Calafiore stars in "Jerseylicious," and yes, people want to name their baby after her. What's your favorite baby name from the recent "Most Popular" list?

    I'm somewhat confused... Baby name, like then we get a child name, a teenager name, an adult name... ? That would be cool though.
    I have too many favourite names - Damien, Iphimedeia, Ariadne, Cheyenne, Fox, Talyn, India, Erika, Kit... Etc, etc!

    Don't name your daughter Felecia or Summer, they might end up hoes. No offence, but I believe that Names have a way of laying out a pattern for which the individuals personality forms throughout life, I know its a stretch but Ive seen some evidence. Patricks are usually nice and intelligent. Katie is cute and probably well mannered. Noah will carry a burden but may become a man of righteousness. Johnathans will be successfull or not, lol. IDK, just a theory I have.

    Way better than this trending slew of Hayden, Aiden, Jayden, Brayden, Kayden, Saden, Rayden. Although Rayden was a cool Mortal Kombat character, but that's where it stops.

    Rayden Mortal Kombat

    I wouldn't put Rayden. He is the one who got his heart taken out by the evil sorcerer :P

    My sister was a friend of this girl who had a kid a couple years ago and named him Rayden.

    I wouldn't have known that happened to Rayden. I haven't played MK is so long I don't know much about the storylines of any of the characters anymore. My all time favorite character was Sub-Zero. Still is.
