For some, Instagram filters are about more than just beautifying your selfie.

Apparently, they’re also useful for naming newborns. The list of the most popular baby names for 2015 has been revealed on BabyCenter.com, and while the traditional choices such as Jackson and Sophia remain at the top, some of the other names may surprise you.

In 2015, parents were clearly inspired by the ‘Gram. For the boys, Lux and Ludwig were up 75 percent and 42 percent, respectively, since 2014. On the girls’ side, Valencia and Juno saw a big rise as well.

The hit Fox show Empire was also a source of inspiration. Mashable reports: The name Dre saw a 77% rise since 2014; Lyon saw a 61% increase; and Hakeem saw a 55% rise. The name Lucious also appeared in BabyCenter’s database for the first time in three years. 

But where’s Cookie?

Other influences include Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black, with Piper seeing an increase, while gender-neutral names such as Lincoln and Wyatt continued their spike as well.
