Inspired by Reality TV

With reality television taking up much of the air time on recognizable channels such as FOX, ABC, NBC and Discovery, is it any wonder that parents are becoming inspired to name their offspring after reality TV personnel?

As stated in the most recent blog, Mason has topped the list of the most common baby names of 2012. But, this name has been high ranking since 2010 after Kourtney Kardashian named her first born child Mason. In 2009, Mason ranked number 34. Just two years later, in 2011, Mason ranked number 2. Do you think Kourtney and Khloe, spelled with a “K” will rank higher in the upcoming years?
