Sophia is the new No. 1 name for girls, moving the most popular girls’ name for the past two years — Isabella — to second-best. Mason was No. 2 on the boys’ list. The federal agency notes that although Mason has been a relatively popular name since the 1990s, it had never reached the top 25 names until 2010. That’s when it hit No. 12, suggesting the rise may be due to reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian‘s son, Mason.
