The site says that names of the photo-sharing apps presets were extremely popular this year for newborns, with Lux being the top choice, up an impressive 75% since 2014. Juno, Reyes, Ludwig, Amaro, Willow, Hudson and Kelvin all climbed up the list from last year too. 

Valencia and Juno were the favourites for little girls, up 26% and 30% respectively since last year.
