The Top Baby Names of 2011 — with a Dark Horse at #2

The top baby names of 2011 are out thanks to the U.S. Social Security Administration. Sophia is the new most popular baby name for girls, while Jacob is the top name for boys for the 13th straight year.

The big surprise this year is...Mason. Mason was previously not even ranked among the top 10, but zoomed to the number two spot in one year. Experts believe its popularity can be credited to celebrity Kourtney Kardashian who named her baby boy Mason in 2009.
