No, the name Saint didn’t make the list, but one of the end-of-year list we look forward to most is the roundup of the top baby names of the year.

The Social Security Administration’s official list won’t be published until May 2016, but BabyCenter has polled its sizable audience (340,000 parents) to find out what the masses named their babies in 2015.

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, seriously—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. And then there 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).

Below, we’ve listed the first 25 of the top baby names 2015 for both girls and boys. You can check out the full list of the top 100 names for girls and boys here.
