Origin/meaning: French, "Stone worker"
Why it's a top name: Did Kourtney Kardashian start a trend? In 2009, when she gave birth to son Mason, the name was ranked 34th in popularity. A year later, it was 12th, and by 2012 it shot to second place. Whether it was Kardashian-inspired or not, the name's laid-back vibe and last-name-as-a-first-name trend will keep it popular for a while.
