BabyCenter also noticed some trends this year....including names inspired by "Fortnite" and the Kardashians.

Names that are tied to "Fortnite" characters and skins like Ramirez, Leviathan, Bunny, and Rogue all had big jumps, And so did names based on the Kardashian-Jenner babies, like Stormi, Dream, Saint, and Reign.
