Babies named after Kardashian kid, Jerseylicious star

Reality TV is once again affecting the names of babies: An increasing number of people named their kids Mason and Briella, which the Social Security Administration attributes to the son of Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ Kourtney Kardashian and a star of Jerseylicious.

While Briella—like Jerseylicious’s Briella Calafiore—is the 497th most-popular name, it moved up 394 positions; Mason is much more popular, having moved from 12 to 2, having jumped from 34 to 12 following the Kardashian kid’s late 2009 birth, the AP reports.

Last year, Teen Mom led an increasing number of parents to name their kids Maci and Bentley.
