Every year the Baby Center compiles an annual list comprised of all the most popular baby names throughout the year, and 2017 is no doubt as interesting as previous years!

You would think that when it comes to naming our own kids, we'd be less influenced by the mainstream media. In reality, names like Zayn (presumably inspired by ex-boy bander Zayn Malik) have risen a whopping 121 positions on the list this past year! That isn't the only name that bears a celeb resemblance considering all of the Pretty Little Liars' cast names are listed- there's no way this is a coincidence! So keep on reading to check out the most popular names and see if you can spot any that sound familiar!
