By the end of every year they make a list of the most popular baby names around the world. This year, we’ve found out that many aprents have decided to name their babies after Instagram filters! It may sound silly, but it’s very true.
Instagram has a huge impact on society nowadays, we can’t deny that. But we’d never imagine that it reached a point in which parents would name their babies after filters for this social website. So, apparently, one of the most used names in 2015 was Lux. Probably never heard it in your life, right? Well, now there are thousands of babies with this same exact name. The same goes for others likes Willow, Amaro, Hudson and Kelvin, although these were already use kind of frequently before this Instagram influence.
It’s amazing to see the evolution of society with the influence of social media in our daily lives. We’ve reached a point that I’m sure nobody would have imagined 10 years ago. Many people think that these tendencies are extremely absurd and we let ourselves be influenced by anything. Others say it’s a good way to express something that for them is important and is part of their daily life.
God knows how all this will be in the future. We can’t even imagine it. But let’s just hope it doesn’t get out of hand.
